A High End Coffee/Wine Bar – Little Pearl – Opens at Hill Center Dec 16
by Larry Janezich
Tim Carmen of WaPo reported a few hours ago that Aaron Silverman’s “Little Pearl” will open for business on Saturday, December 16 at Hill Center. As most Hill residents who dine on Barracks Row already know, Silverman owns and creates fine cuisine at the four-star Pineapple and Pearls and the three-star Rose’s Luxury.
Eschewing specialty coffee shop machinery and techniques, Pearl will present more traditional espresso concoctions and drip coffees plus a menu of specialty drinks and in-house pastries and breakfast wraps. The wine bar will open in a couple of weeks around year’s end; the menu will feature a variety of appetizers, both simple and more elegant. Some of these include Japanese-style fried chicken, tarts, and in house gelati, churros and chocolate.
After Bayou Bakery owner/chef David Gaus closed his restaurant at Hill Center last year, the lease was taken over by Silverman who had been looking to expand and relocate the fledgling coffee shop at Pineapple and Pearls.
