We’ve finally learned who’s taking over the prime corner space formerly home to Neisha Thai and EUR Asian – Burger Tap & Shake.

The liquor license placard posted out front says:

“Restaurant serving American food, specializing in quick-service burgers, shakes, and salads. Sidewalk Café with seating for 25. Total Occupancy Load of 99.”

There is currently a Burger Tap & Shake located at 2200 Pennsylvania Ave, NW in Foggy Bottom. Their website says:

“Throughout the day, we grind on premise a custom blend of 3-day aged, naturally raised Local Harvest beef chuck and brisket. Char-griddled and served on a buttered, toasted, house made bun. By focusing on premium sourcing and in-house production – from pickles to ice cream – we are able to serve a great burger at a great price.

BTS is a counter service, seat-yourself burger joint with an atmosphere of no-nonsense industrial chic: light cement floors, an exposed black ductwork ceiling, and a cement bar faced with rough-hewn reclaimed wood. The walls of the open stainless steel grill-kitchen are lined with work-a-day subway tile. When your burger is ready, it is presented on a quarter-size metal sheet pan topped with a sheet of paper – no fuss, no muss, no plate!”

Bread & Salt is finally opening in Tenleytown. I was told they had a friends and family last night and will be soft opening this week. Their facebook page says:

“In bread, life is sustained; in salt, it is preserved. People have recognized this since ancient times, when women in the fertile crescent gathered around the village oven, baking their families’ daily loaves, simmering clay pots full of the fruits of the local harvest, and adding pinches of precious salt. The Arabic word “aish” means both “life” and “bread.” Roman soldiers were judged by whether they were “worth their salt.”

Over the centuries, bread 7 salt became synonymous with hospitality and communality. In many cultures bread & salt are still offered at housewarmings, representing hope that the newcomer’s pantry will always be full. In Russian, visitors to a home traditionally exclaim “Khleb da sol!” meaning bread & salt. In Mediterranean cultures, bread & salt are shared to seal agreements_more powerful than any written contract.

It is in this spirit we created Bread & Salt, A Neighborhood Eatinghouse. Here hospitality still revolves around the oven, from which emerge rustic loaves, flatbreads, and lay pots full of slow-cooked flavors. These are healthful, hearty foods to be shared by families and friends, meant not to be eaten on the run, but to be enjoyed together, either in our home, or in yours. the concept may be as ancient as bread and salt, but the setting is as contemporary as todays whole-grain loaf and pinch of Mediterranean sea salt.”

They’re located right next to Dancing Crab who have been closed for renovations since November 2013:

Asking around it seems like the original owners (they celebrated 40 years back in 2013) sold and the new owners are possibly the same folks who own Tony & Joes in Georgetown. I was also told that utility work has started so (as readers have noted) even though their Facebook page has not been updated and their website is down – they’re still very likely coming back. Though, it’s looking like they won’t open for many more months. Tons of work has already gone in but you can see that tons more still needs to happen:
