14th and Quincy St, NW
From a press release:
“The Biscuit Lab Baking Company is proud to launch its first pop-up restaurant on Sunday, October 26th from 11-3 PM at Lyman’s Tavern. Biscuit Lab will serve up homemade buttermilk biscuits, biscuit breakfast sandwiches and seasonal sides including cheesy grits.
“There’s no other place in the city like the Biscuit Lab,” said Phil Coppersmith, Biscuit Lab Co-founder. “We saw a chance to make a buttermilk biscuit that’s even better than what your grandma makes and went for it.” Biscuit Lab founders Michael Visser and Philip Coppersmith are two guys with the philosophy that “putting it on a biscuit” makes everything taste better. “Our ultimate goal is to give the people the best biscuit they’ve ever had,” said Mike Visser, Biscuit Lab Co- founder.
Both Mike and Phil bring a passion for making buttermilk biscuits the right way. Over the last six months, they have researched, baked, tweaked, and tossed out countless recipes, until arriving at the perfect combination of a biscuit that’s buttery, perfectly tender, and strong enough to hold up to any condiment.
The menu this weekend at the Biscuit Lab includes buttermilk biscuits, drop biscuits, Red Neck Benedict, “an open-face biscuit with ham, slow-poached egg, and red eye sausage gravy”.
Mike is a graduate of the L’Academie de Cuisine pastry program and has been working in all aspects of the restaurant world for the last five years. An accomplished pastry chef and an expert in specialty coffee, Mike started Flying Fish Coffee and Tea in 2011, in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC. Phil has worked both front and back of house in restaurants as a teenager. After graduating college, he focused his career on the Federal Government Contracting, first in Human Resources then into IT Consulting.
Biscuit will open its doors at Lyman’s at 3720 14th St NW, and will continue every Sunday.”
