Thanks to all the readers who sent word (and photos) about U Street’s new BBQ option. Ketcha Fire will be located at 928 U St, NW next to Pinz-n-Needles Tattoo shop (by Vermont Ave.) Their Web site is still under construction but you’ll be able to see their menu here soon. We’ll def. be back for a taste soon.

    Another empty storefront fills up on this block. I am very excited to see what this place is like.

    I’m not superstitious, but that name is a little ominous for a restaurant.

    Look at the bright side, if the restaurant does not do well it may just “Ketcha Fire”

    I love bbq. Can’t have enough options. I miss the old bbq place in the space next door- it was probably a bit ahead of its time… I think it was called “Brown Sugar”?

    “Exquisite flavors with an international appeal” – who writes this stuff? Looks interesting though – wonder if it is like a Korean or Middle Eastern style BBQ place.

    Facebook page indicates jerk chicken.

    I live near there and was chatting with one of the restaurant folks on Friday. He said it would be Jamaican style food and that they had hoped to open over the weekend. Unfortunately, when I walked by there on Sat or Sun, I noticed that one of the front windows was broken and the door had been tagged. Not a good welcome to the neighborhood but I’m excited for the addition.

    It looks pretty decent inside too. I’m excited to eat there!

    I’m happy about this and will give it a try. However, when I think BBQ, I think Southern BBQ sauce, cornbread, greens, etc… and I’m from the North. I don’t associate Jamaica and jerk seasoning with BBQ, even if it’s bbq’d.

      I think barbecue (both the word and the food) is originally from the Caribbean though.

    I hope they are well-insured.
