MatÃ© Lounge, part of the Latin Concepts family just launched a new seasonal cocktail list along with a fresh innovative sushi menu, all for friends to test and taste on Wednesday evening. The private event began at 6pm and as guests walked in, scoping out the “new interior”, we found that the former seating had been replaced along with a few other adjustments, which while it wasn’t a whole facelift, was pleasantly welcomed.Â Those outdated chairs had seen better days … and plenty of butts.
Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld, Osmar Nunez-Vilches (with his new studious cheeky frames, which he took off as soon as he walked) and Farees Salim entertained the group which was growing by the throngs with pals from what I like to call the “throwback days”. Ah, those were the days. The faces were so familiar, albeit years later from when we haunted the Georgetown lounge weekly, sometimes nightly.Â Now MatÃ© has returned with a novel personality and beckons old and new patrons to dig into the sushi and sip on the cocktails.
MatÃ© Lounge is located across from the Georgetown Harbor at 3101 K Street, NW.
