“Franklin’s on 3rd and K NE is being replaced by an Indian restaurant. Guy owns a booth called Indigo at Eastern Market. Should open July/August with outdoor seating.”

Frozen Tropics dug up a tweet from Indigo that confirms:

Thanks to another reader for sending the following photo from Eastern Market:


Any fans of Indigo from Eastern Market?

The space is located right across the street from the Timothy Dean Burger coming to the Loree Grand.

  • Huge upgrade. I hope Indigo hires a good industrial cleaning company first…

  • LOVE Indigo’s food at Eastern Market. Great flavor, esp. great veggie dishes. Glad to see them get a perm spot.

    • I’ve had the opposite experience with their veggie dishes. I didn’t know it was possible for Indian food to be so bland! But they seem to be doing well so I’m happy to see they’re expanding.

  • That place was owned by Franklin from Arrested Development, right?

  • Such good news! I can’t go past their stand without getting a wrap. Vegetarian with lots of paneer, please!

  • Excellent news. Was standing at the bus stop this morning and saw the door open. I was wondering if the store was a front or whether something was going into the space.
