Company

The Presidential Restaurant Group, created by restaurateur Alan Popovsky and Washington DC businessman Melvyn J. Estrin, is a Washington DC hospitality company featuring a family of restaurants and catering division founded to celebrate American presidents and bring history to life through unforgettable dining experiences. Our upscale casual dining and catering are an expression of artistic collaboration in gastronomy. All PRG restaurants and catering menus feature the very best sustainable fish and certified humane meat, poultry and the freshest produce from local farms.

The common thread at PRG is an emphasis on excellent food, superior service, and the local community. Through the years, we’ve been fortunate to receive acknowledgements, awards and testimonials from our customers and industry peers, including Washingtonian Magazine’s 2015 Best Wedding Vendor,Trip Advisor’s 2014 Certificate of Excellence, DC Modern Luxury Magazine’s Best New Restaurant Design of 2011 and Washington Post Editor’s Pick for Best Late Night Happy Hour.

PRG’s greatest strength is its people, each contributing expertise to different aspects of the business. We are fortunate to attract the industry’s best and brightest talent, and we provide training and professional opportunities that enable their success. We believe in supporting and empowering our employees, and we enjoy a degree of staff loyalty and tenure that is rare in this high-turnover business. Corporate Chef and Partner Demetrio Zavala is an example of the type of employee that is hired and developed at PRG.

We believe in giving back to the communities we serve. Our restaurants participate in many special events and benefits, support numerous charity organizations, and generate our own charity events as well.

We strive to bring out the best in one another, taking our collective talent to the next level as a company. As a result, we have been able to nurture each other, our guests, our suppliers and our investors by creating a meaningful, sustainable business that enriches our community at large. It’s been a thrilling journey so far, and we can’t wait to see where it leads next.
