2441 18th St, NW was home to Jumbo Slices and Kabob, you remember the questionable marketing campaign? Well they didn’t last long, closing back in Sept. ’11.

I’ve been keeping my eyes on the space and I finally got to talk with one of the new owners. I think folks are gonna be very happy. While our communication was a bit limited due to his lack of English and my lack of Japanese, there was one element of our conversation that was crystal clear: there will be no jumbo slice in the new space. He was adamant about that. While his plans are not finalized, I pressed him to find out what options they were considering and he said a Ramen/Japanese style restaurant. Nice! This def. seems like it could be legit. Stay tuned for more details as their plans are finalized.
