Thanks to @OhBootsy (and others) for tweeting us the new coming soon signage for Avenue Jack at 1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW in the former Copenhaver space next to Starbucks. Their website says:

“We’re long time Washington, DC residents. We’re active in the community. And we love clothes. It’s as simple as that.

After years of working on the apparel manufacturing side, we are excited to be opening our first retail clothing store, just one block south of bustling Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. We are curating an exciting blend of everything from every day basics to one-of-a-kind pieces, that will enhance the modern, urban guy’s closet.

From the companies we all know and love, to small independent brands you haven’t heard of yet, we’ll have a hearty, ever-changing mix of wares ready for you when you walk through our doors.

We’ve got the keys, we’re busy building out our new space, and we can’t wait to open Avenue Jack in April 2015. Check back for the exact date of our grand opening.”

Ed. Note: Via email the owner tells me a soft opening is planned for Mid April.



UPDATE from the Washington Post. Confirmed for early summer.

A tipster says yes. In that row just south of the Dupont North metro exit where the Sweetgreen, ShopHouse and Burger joint are. If true this would be the 2nd Beefsteak, following the one in Foggy Bottom. You can read about the “vegetable-focused fast casual restaurant” here.
