Scuttlebutt Confirmed: Chipotle’s Asian Themed Restaurant – Shophouse – Opening up in Dupont Circle

Back in the end of Feb. I shared some scuttlebutt saying that a Shophouse would be coming to 1516 Connecticut Ave, NW next to the BGR on the north side of Dupont Circle. We noted that back in Nov. ’10 it was widely reported that Chipotle would be opening up a series of Asian themed restaurants in 2011, likely to be called ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen.  I’m happy to say that the scuttlebutt we heard at the end of Feb. is the real deal.

A recent liquor license application posted at 1516 Connecticut Ave, NW says:

“Shophouse Southeast Asian Kitchen

New Southeast Asian Restaurant with recorded background music. Total Seating is 40. Total Occupancy Load is 50.”

We’ll def. be revisiting when they open.
