Shawarma Spot Only Open for Dinner in Adams Morgan

2418 18th Street, NW

On Saturday a reader asks:

“What’s up with Shawarma Spot? They were closed at lunch last Sat. and yesterday but no sign on their door. No one answers their phone. Is this temporary or permanent closure?”

I stopped by yesterday and the space was still closed and calls went to voicemail. Shawarma Spot opened at 2418 18th St, NW back in Jan. 2009. The Adams Morgan BID tells me that they are now only open for dinner service.

Back in 2009 it looked like shawarma had a bright future in Adams Morgan as another restaurant – Shawarma King opened around the same time at 1654 Columbia Road, NW. Shawarma King closed this summer and will be replaced by Doner Bistro.

Shawarma Spot originally reduced their hours due to the streetscape project but now that that project is completed, it is not known whether they will add more hours. More info as it becomes available.
