Exclusive: ‘Bill and Giuliana’ to Bring Restaurant to D.C.

by Kelly Collis

Bill and Giuliana Rancic have a successful brand: She is the host of E! News and he’s a successful businessman and the winner of the first season of Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice.”

The couple also has a reality show, “Bill and Giuliana,” on Style Network and now a restaurant chain.

This is where it gets interesting for the DMV…

Over the summer, a “Giuliana and Bill” episode included a trip to D.C. to check out locations for RPM Italian Restaurant.

On The Tommy Show Tuesday morning, Guiliana — a Bethesda native — revealed the location will be on Massachusetts Avenue, near the old NPR building, which was the former location of the Buddha Bar. And it’s slated to open its doors in early 2015.

We can’t wait!

RPM Italian Restaurant — which debuted in 2012 in Chicago’s River North neighborhood — is a collaboration with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, the parent group behind Maggiano’s, Corner Bakery and others.

***CORRECTION: Thanks to our friends at the Washington City Paper for the correction. It will not be in the Buddha Bar but somewhere near 6th and Mass.
