Fuego by DC’s Premier Restaurant General Contractor

Welcome to Potomac Construction Services. Below is one of our recently completed projects.

Restaurant: Fuego, Washington DC

Architect:  Gensler

Overview:   Fuego was a full renovation from a dark tap room to a lively, vibrant atmosphere with bright, colorful finishes and a Latin flare. The restaurant is located in Clarendon Virginia in a neighborhood that lacked authentic Mexican cuisine. Fuego is two stories with the Tequileria downstairs and the Cocina dining room upstairs. The upstairs dining level features a large fireplace and an open kitchen that gives the restaurant lots of energy and atmosphere.  This was the second project we worked on with Passion Food Hospitality.  The first was Passion Fish Reston Virginia.
