Bread & Salt – A Neighborhood Eatinghouse Coming to Tenleytown

4619 41st Street, NW just off Wisconsin Ave

Thanks to a reader for sending word of this new signage up in Tenleytown – Bread & Salt – A Neighborhood Eatinghouse. This is the retail spot in the new building next to Dancing Crab:


Back in 2012 this retail space was supposed to become a restaurant called Fork and Spade. Apparently that didn’t work out and now we have Bread & Salt coming soon. Updates as they get closer to opening.

    Bread and Salt
    I feel a Billy Collins poem
    about to emerge.


    You are the bread and the knife,
    the crystal goblet and the wine.
    You are the dew on the morning grass
    and the burning wheel of the sun.
    You are the white apron of the baker,
    and the marsh birds suddenly in flight.

    However, you are not the wind in the orchard,
    the plums on the counter,
    or the house of cards.
    And you are certainly not the pine-scented air.
    There is just no way that you are the pine-scented air.

    It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
    maybe even the pigeon on the general’s head,
    but you are not even close
    to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.

    And a quick look in the mirror will show
    that you are neither the boots in the corner
    nor the boat asleep in its boathouse.

    It might interest you to know,
    speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
    that I am the sound of rain on the roof.

    I also happen to be the shooting star,
    the evening paper blowing down an alley
    and the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table.

    I am also the moon in the trees
    and the blind woman’s tea cup.
    But don’t worry, I’m not the bread and the knife.
    You are still the bread and the knife.
    You will always be the bread and the knife,
    not to mention the crystal goblet and–somehow–the wine.
    Billy Collins

  • Bread & Salt: where we don’t observe guest right and every night’s a red wedding!

  • I wish it luck because I live nearby but that block, like so many in Tenleytown, is an uninviting mishmash of, mostly ugly, architectural styles.

  • I think this is just a couple of doors down from The Prince Cafe which at one time was voted the worst restaurant in DC. Despite that it continues to remain in business!
