The iconic Capitol Hill watering hole Hawk 'n' Dove has been sold.

Xavier Cervera, owner of Barracks Row eateries Chesapeake Room, Molly Malone's and Senart’s Oyster and Chop House, has purchased the business from longstanding proprietor Stuart Long.

The forthcoming September issue of Hill Rag has the scoop: Cervera tells the Rag that the old Hawk will close in October and undergo a “100% renovation," though much of the existing memorabilia will be reattached to the walls once the extensive interior work is complete. Cervera plans "a locally sourced, seasonal bistro menu" and a "50-foot exhibition bar, dispensing 25 beers on tap and 16 wines by the glass."

The new proprietor will discuss his renovation plans for the property at a Sept. 6 hearing before the Capitol Hill Restoration Society.

Hawk ‘n’ Dove Sold! New Owner Xavier Cervera Plans Total Renovation was originally published by Washington City Paper on Aug. 30, 2011.
