To our Customers. As holiday season approaches, Recess management has, at this time, chosen to do a seasonal close in order to accommodate the various private events and holiday parties taking place in the coming weeks.

ABOUT THE CHEF

Venezuelan born and Institution of Art trained Chef Will Vivas will serve as Executive Chef for Recess’s new tapas lounge. Vivas is known for his namesake restaurant Vivas in Belmar, NJ. A newcomer to Washington, Vivas literally grew up in a commercial kitchen—in Venezuela, where his mother ran a small restaurant inside their house. Later, he moved to the States to attend a four-year culinary program in New York City.  Previously named by Zagat – New Jersey as one their top 40 chefs, Vivas hopes to make a splash on the D.C food scene.
