ramen world 3

From a press release:

ROUND 1 from NOON – 2:00PM //\\ ROUND 2 from 3:00PM – 5:00PM

DC Ramen Revolutionaries Return, With New DC Artisans Added to the Line-Up.

Mess Hall Washington DC’s premiere food incubator based in Edgewood, is pleased to present ‘Ramen World 3.’

Once a year, Mess Hall opens its event space AND its private kitchens to host DC’s favorite Asian food concepts. The uniquely designed space enables attendees to go behind the scenes and enjoy dishes that are prepared hot and fresh in front of them, as ramen should be served.

“We take a bunch of hot restaurants with hard-to-get reservations and long lines, and we put them under one roof; but that’s only half the story,” said Al Goldberg, founder of Mess Hall. “Next, we identify a bunch of up-and-comers and put them right alongside the big names. This embodies our core values, we are constantly finding new ways to help launch talented chefs. The result: emerging concepts catch the buzz and sometimes, they even create the most popular dishes of the day. Flash back to Ramen World 1 which featured a fledgling Thip Khao. Likewise, Ramen World 2 gave DC its very first slurp of Bantam King and a sneak preview of Toli Moli. We do what we can to broaden the DC food scene; that involves connecting chefs, restaurants, Mess Hall’s producers, and he public.”

Ramen World 3 will highlight an incredible new lineup.

UPDATE from another reader:

“There’s no plan for there to be a halfway house at 711 Edgewood. CORE used the address – without permission of the owner of the property – to apply to a federal request for proposals (RFP).”

“Dear PoPville,

Thought the community may be interested in knowing about this/signing the petition

The Federal Bureau of Prisons has proposed to locate a Prisoner Re-Entry Housing Facility in our neighborhood at 711 Edgewood St NE. This location is inappropriate because of its proximity to a cluster of two elementary schools and a middle school each across the street.

While services and support should be given to our fellow citizens, the currently proposed location is an inappropriate location because of the surrounding schools and children, and their families.

Here is some information about the proposed facility: (more…)
