Thanks to a reader for sending. Energy kitchen opened only about a year ago at 19th and L St, NW next to Sweetgreen.

Their Web site says:

We take the guesswork out of eating healthy by offering a completely guilt-free, fail-proof menu. There are no hidden temptations, no hidden calories and, best of all, no regrets. Everything on our menu is grilled, baked or steamed, never fried, and always under 500 calories.

Our grass-fed beef is free range, 90% lean and all natural. All of our buns and wraps are made with whole wheat (not to mention a whole lotta love). Plus, all of our beverages are low calorie, our dressings fat-free and our meals as delicious as they are healthy. Go ahead, dig into a low-fat, high-protein meal that tastes great and that you can feel good about. Serves you right (really, it does!).

You can see their menus here.

Were there any fans? Updates when we learn who will take over the space.

This is the space formerly home to Asian Bistro – “Authentic Asian Cousin”:

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

From MPD:

“Chief Lanier greets the newest member of the Force, Sam. Sam is a bloodhound and is trained to track human scent. While we have several dogs that are trained to conduct human tracks, this dog’s sole purpose is to track people- even over long distances. This will be especially helpful when looking for missing persons.”
