About Us:

A Dream Realized

Thally is the brainchild of Sherman Outhuok, After locating the perfect spot, on a burgeoning block of 9th St. NW near the DC Convention Center, Thally was born. The name pays tribute to our Shaw neighborhood as well as our families: “Thally” refers to the Tally-Ho Stables (built in 1883) located in Naylor Court directly behind our restaurant, as well as to Thalia, Sherman’s daughter. (Thally is pronounced without saying the “H”, as in Tally-ho.) Thally was conceived to be a comfortable and inviting neighborhood restaurant, as well as a destination worthy of Washingtonians crossing the city to 9th St. NW to discover our mouthwatering cuisine.

Our Team

Thally is co-owned by Sherman Outhuok, and Paolo Sacco.

Sherman Outhuok, General Manager & Co-Owner

A longtime fixture on DC’s bar scene, Sherman Outhuok was a managing partner for a number of years at Posto restaurant on 14th St. He then went on to open Maple in Columbia Heights as the Bar Manager /AGM.  He makes his own “Cello” (sweet and citrusy) liquors, inspired from his time at Posto. You’ll regularly find Outhuok behind the bar mixing up new batches of Lemon, Tangerine, Orange and even Grapefruit Cello. You’ll also see him front-of-house, greeting guests.

Paolo Sacco, Co-Owner

With more than 20 years of experience in Washington, DC, as well as substantial culinary work throughout Italy, London, and New York, Paolo Sacco is highly regarded as a dynamic leader in the restaurant and hospitality industry. He is the well-known and admired Owner of Ristorante Tosca, Co-Owner of Posto, and now a Co-Owner of Thally.

Sacco’s hard work, dedication, and mission to always provide the highest quality cuisine and service to his patrons have placed him among the elite of Washington’s restaurateurs.  Sacco’s career in DC began when he became the maitre d’ at the very trendy Bice Restaurant from 1993-1995, where he was responsible for the operation of the dining room, as well as creating unique menus with the chef. Since its opening in April 2001, Ristorante Tosca has firmly established itself as a mature player and premier Italian restaurant on the Washington restaurant scene.  Sacco’s trattoria-style restaurant, Posto, has followed that same path – albeit on a more casual level, as it is quickly became a cornerstone on 14th St.’s restaurant row. With Sacco’s guidance, Thally is poised to lead the charge in making 9th St. NW a culinary destination.
