3301 Georgia Ave, NW

Earlier in the week we noted that Mothership, coming to 3301 Georgia Ave, NW, had applied for a liquor license. We also learned they were 3 weeks out from opening. I stopped by for some early photos yesterday and was happy to learn that permits were getting issued and they were still on track for an opening in about 3 weeks. You can also tell from these early photos that the space is starting to look great. You can track their progress and follow them on twitter @MothershipDC. And of course I’ll post again when an opening date is finalized. In the meantime – here’s a first look inside the former Brown’s Caribbean Bakery. Note that over 80% of the materials have been recycled.

More photos after the jump.

    Well, alright, star child…


  • Chazmania

    Welcome to the neighborhood. So glad they are here

    The sandwiches on the chef’s food truck are the best in the city in my opinion. Really looking forward to seeing the menu at this place and washing it down with a beer.

    • If the menu is printed on card stock, you might need more than just a beer to wash it down.

    Interior doesn’t look too impressive yet but I’m assuming they still have a long way to go. As I live a block from here I’m def. interested in having some other cool options.

  • Can’t wait til they open!

  • It’s a little bit weird for me that they kept the decor from Brown’s Bakery. I think it might haunt me a little when I go there.

    • You’re kidding, right?

      • If you knew my history with Brown’s bakery, you would know I’m not kidding. I used to go there ritually since the 80s.

    Before it was Brown’s, it was a pharmacy.

    This looks good, but I really miss Brown’s spicy beef patties. And the coconut candy, too.

    • saf

      And the chicken patties and the jerk wings and the cherry turnovers and the Easter bread.

    Browns is still around – moved further up Georgia Ave, about a mile.

    Cannot wait! Check out this guy’s food truck (El Floridano) for a preview. The roast pork sandwich with spicy guava sauce is out of this world!!

  • hooray

    As someone who contributed to the kickstarter campaign, I’m super psyched for this place to open. Nice to see another abandoned GA ave storefront get renewed.
