Zinnia will now require proof of vaccination for indoor dining, the restaurant announced on Instagram yesterday.
“We will be requiring proof of vaccination to dine with us at Zinnia (for indoor dining),” the announcement reads. “Either a physical card or a picture of your card must be presented before entering the building.”
The announcement was reported yesterday by The MoCo Show.
Takoma Bev Co. owner Chris Brown opened Zinnia on October 1 at the former location of Mrs. K’s Toll House at the intersection of Colesville Road and Dale Drive in Silver Spring. Mrs. K’s closed and was offered for lease last year, after marking 90 years in business.
“I think we’re going to be able to take the traditional kind of food that would go great with a beer or a glass of wine and kind of elevate to a level back when Mrs. K’s was high-end dining for the D.C. area,” Mr. Brown said to the Source last July, “[and] have that kind of balance where you can come in, have that kind of that cool vintage feel, elevated fare, but have that relaxed garden experience.”
Zinnia’s first annual Holiday Pop-Up and Gift Market is featured in Washingtonian Magazine’s roundup of D.C. Area Winter Bars and Restaurants.
