This is great timing as I was just asking a friend of mine what was going on with the old Waffle House located near E Street Cinema. Ed. Note: We saw An Education which I thought was terrific. I received an email update from the Downtown BID today with the news. They write:
Look for the old Waffle House (522 10th Street) to become the second DC location for Tackle Box, a Pure Hospitality Restaurant Group lobster shack. Located across from Ford’s Theatre (511 10th Street), the Waffle House offered steaks, grilled chicken and pork chops for breakfast, in addition to waffles, hot cakes and French toast. A different aroma will waft through the 10th Street corridor once Tackle Box, a casual sustainable seafood option, opens this fall and begins serving wood-grilled fish, crispy oysters, lobster rolls and other fare.
We judged the Georgetown location of Tackle Box here.
