Dear PoPville – Open Kitchen Diner is Really Good!

847 Upshur St, NW

Dear PoPville,

My husband and I tried this new restaurant, “Open Kitchen Diner” at 847 Upshur St. NW, just a few doors down from domku. It used to be one of the zillion, tired carry-out places. Now it has been transformed into a super clean, homestyle soul food restaurant with bar seating around the kitchen area and a few tables and chairs. The food is lovingly and carefully prepared–not overcooked. The macaroni and cheese was perfect as were the greens and sweet potatoes. Dinner for two was only $11.00! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve never written to you before or felt the need to recommend a place, but this place deserves our community support!
