ShopHouse Opens Today at 1516 Connecticut Ave, NW in Dupont

You heard about it here first as mere scuttlebutt back in Feb. ’11. And today’s the day you can get a taste. From an email:

“ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen, the much-anticipated new restaurant by Steve Ells and his team at Chipotle, will open today, Thursday, September 15, from 11 am until 10 pm at 1516 Connecticut Ave just above Dupont Circle in the District. Serving noodle and rice bowls and báhn mi, (Vietnamese subs) filled with assertively spiced meats, vegetables and sauces, ShopHouse is offering its version of what you might find at hawker stalls in Singapore, Bangkok or Hanoi.”

We’ll be back for a proper judging after they’ve been open for a bit. But if anyone stops by and has an early taste/opinion – let us know what you think.
