What’s Shakin’ in the Makin’ Vol. 4 – Taqueria Coming to 3313 11th St, NW (11th and Lamont)

Ed. Note: ‘What’s Shakin’ in the Makin’ was formerly known as ‘Danger Watch’, a series that looks into the “coming soon” status of restaurants/bars.

We last looked into 3313 11th St, NW back in Aug. 2011. At the time we learned that the Taqueria from Jackie Greenbaum had already received it’s liquor license.

Washingtonian now tells us:

Jackie Greenbaum, whose restaurant Jackie’s helped to usher in the era of suburban chic when she converted a Silver Spring auto parts store into a trippy enclave of pink pillows and quirky comfort food, is set to open El Chucho’s Cocina Superior in Columbia Heights this May, serving “inauthentic Mexican food.”

The forthcoming taqueria, located at 3313 11th Street, Northwest, will seat 40 inside, with an additional 16 seats outside and another 40 on the roof.

Greenbaum is aiming for a Cinco de Mayo opening.

More details on the menu here.

I love the name “El Chucho’s Cocina Superior” and I’m so glad I can finally stop referring to it as the “new taqueria” coming to 11th and Lamont St, NW across from Room 11. Though, I’ll be interested to see how 40 people can fit on the roof.
