“Bar Rescue” star and hospitality entrepreneur Jon Taffer and Franchise owner and Cuisine Solutions President and CEO Felipe Hasselmann celebrated the Grand Opening of Taffer’s Tavern in Washington D.C. next to Capital One Arena.
The Grand Opening festivities included recognition from Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development John Falcicchio, who presented Taffer with a proclamation on behalf of the Office of Mayor Muriel Bowser. Additional special guests included City Councilmember for Ward 5 Kenyan R. McDuffie.
Cuisine Solutions, the world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of sous vide foods and a Taffer’s Tavern franchise owner, worked with Taffer to create a kitchen of the future.
“We worked with Jon Taffer on creating an incredible restaurant experience where every detail was discussed and developed with our guest experience in mind” says local franchise owner and Cuisine Solutions President and CEO Felipe Hasselmann. “It has been a great experience for us to consult with Jon on the state-of-the-art kitchen design for the Taffer’s Tavern concept, and we are thrilled to be a franchise owner as well. So, while the tavern itself incorporates many state-of-the-art innovations when it comes to food preparation and safety, the focus is delivering a high-quality, delicious experience in an inviting environment that we know our patrons will enjoy.”
