Southern breakfast fare with a west coast twist and cold-pressed juice cocktails will hit Sterling in mid-May.
Damian Dajcz of Senor Ramon Taqueria and Jake Endres and Lee Rogan of Crooked Run Brewing are the brains behind the upcoming Daybreak Biscuit Company and Nectar Cocktail Bar. The bar and restaurant will be located in the space adjacent to their popular taco shop and brewery in Sterling at 22455 Davis Dr.
Dajcz said he came up with the idea after a trip to Los Angeles last year.
“There are not enough breakfast restaurants in our area, and Jake loved the idea, so we decided to bring these two concepts under one roof,” Dajcz told the Times-Mirror.
Daybreak Biscuit Company will serve breakfast Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to midnight and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The young businessmen plan to expand the hours and days of the week after the operation is up and running smooth.
“It's a creative, different approach merging different concepts. We are focused on the experience, good food and music. We have spent a lot of time planning it, and we are excited. It is really coming together,” Dajcz said.
Daybreak and Nectar are located in the same building as Crooked Run Brewing and Senor Ramon's, with a connecting hallway making it feel “like a food hall,” Dajcz said.
They have constructed a stage for live music, and there will be a kiosk that Dajcz calls “Groove Stand” serving mango ceviche. It will feature shaved mango with unique toppings.
“It's really creative. I first saw it in Miami, and we have put a new twist on the toppings,” he said.
On Daybreak's menu will be homemade biscuits with a variety of toppings, fried chicken and gravy, avocado toast, salads, chicken sandwiches and other brunch-style fare.
“It is a combination of healthy, very flavorful food. We will create the right balance by crossing new boundaries, and we hope the end result is what we expected,” Dajcz said.
Nectar will offer cold-pressed juice drinks made from a state-of-the-art pressing machine. It will also feature craft cocktails and guest beers from breweries around the country not often seen in Virginia, Endres said.
“There are incredible mimosa flavors made with six to eight different types of juices,” he said. “This is going to bring a complete and total experience with what we have already created."
The 9,000-square-foot space is “coming alive,” Dajcz said.
Food will be counter-style service, with seating for up to 150 people.
In addition to the new Senor Ramon's location in Leesburg -- set to open soon at the corner of King and Loudoun streets -- Dajcz is opening a new Senor Ramon's in Reston in the months ahead.
