James “Tru” Redding, owner of JTR Construction and partner in Public Bar, Lupe, Sushi Rock and now TruOrleans Restaurant and Gallery, has an established reputation in the Washington DC area achieved through attention to detail and hard work in all his ventures.
Mr. Redding began in the construction business twenty five years ago and started his own construction company in 1998. In 2009 Mr. Redding expanded into the real estate development and restaurant business and has seen nothing but success in these ventures.
Public Bar, started in 2009 with other partners, has been a huge success in the DC restaurant and club market, now expanding to their second location in Tenleytown. Mr. Redding also is a partner in Lupe Restaurant in DC and Sushi Rock in Virginia.
Mr. Redding and his partners found the perfect location along the H Street Corridor on 4th and H Streets, NE. TruOrleans is a concept that evolved out of Mr. Redding’s love of Cajun food and a close relationship to several chefs in Louisiana.
