The Washington Monument is a giant, soaring structure, and for many people, the best thing to do when they’re visiting is to try to make one.
The Pancake House, designed by the architect and restaurant entrepreneur John L. Mater, is an homage to the Washington Monument and is a celebration of American exceptionalism and individualism.
Its three tiers of panoramic windows are lined with handmade wooden and stainless steel bowls filled with pancakes, and there are even pancakes made from wood and recycled milk.
“It’s not like you can walk in and go, ‘Oh, I’m hungry, I’ve got to get some food,'” Mater said in a recent interview.
“The best way to say it is you can sit there, you can enjoy your meal, and you can eat some pancakes.”
You can make your own pancakes, of course, and Mater has been making them at his restaurant, Pancake Bar & Grill since 2012.
He and his wife, Joanna, opened their new restaurant on a quiet corner of Maryland Avenue NW in the shadow of the White House on the day President Donald Trump was inaugurated.
But the Maters have also had a longstanding interest in creating their own restaurants, especially in the past, so they took a page from the Washington Parkitecture Manual.
They built their own restaurant at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, in 2006.
In the same year, they also built their first restaurant in the heart of Chicago, an effort to revitalize a neglected area.
Mater is also the founder and CEO of Mater Inc., which operates restaurants around the country.
Their first location in New York City was a five-star restaurant called the Mator Grill, which he opened in the city’s Chinatown neighborhood in 2008.
His other Chicago restaurant, the Tenderloin, opened in 2009, a year before the Chicago riots broke out.
By 2011, Mater had built up a large following.
When he opened his first restaurant, The Pancake Restaurant in Washington D.C., he said, “We didn’t even know what a restaurant was.”
It was just a way to feed his family, he said.
So they built their second restaurant in 2013 and they’ve been expanding.
We are just trying to fill a void that we created in Washington.
“Mather’s Pancake Houses, with their panoramas of the U.S. Capitol and the Statue of Liberty, are part of a larger effort to reimagine the Washington landscape.
They’re just a small part of what Mater is trying to accomplish.
While Mater was the architect behind the Washington’s Pancakes restaurant, he’s not the only one trying to reimagine the Washington experience.
At the White theaters, for example, Mather’s team is reimagining the restaurant experience.
The restaurant is a more intimate, casual restaurant with a patio.
And in 2015, the restaurant received its own $10 million grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to create an interactive installation called The Pancakes That Changed Washington.
On a visit to the White, Manton said that the Washington D-C.
restaurant is an attempt to give back to Washington, D.U., the city that has been so important to him and his family for so long.
For Mater and his team, the Pancakehouse serves as a way of honoring the city, and also an opportunity to reflect on the country’s future.”
It really does kind of show the way forward in the world,” Manton told the Washington Post.
From the beginning, the Mantons said, they knew they wanted to take their time to design the restaurant, but they also knew it would take a certain level of planning to build a restaurant in this era.
Instead of just building a restaurant, they said, the team decided to build something that would help define a city for generations to come.”
We wanted it to be the perfect dining experience.”
