Construction Starts on Smashburger in Dupont Circle – Should Open in 2-3 Months

This coming soon sign made me chuckle a bit. Thanks to a reader for sending word.  Back in late Feb. we learned that a Smashburger would be coming to the former Lucky Brand Store Space in Dupont Circle. I spoke with one of the workers on the site who said they should be open in about 2-3 months. You can see Smashburger’s menu here.

1739 Connecticut Avenue, NW

  • Good thing. That neighborhood could sure use a burger place.

      that’s true, dupont is giving U street a run for its money in terms of burger places per capita.

    I’m just mad the Lucky store closed.

    Please, in the name of all things holy, can we put an end to burger joints! We don’t need more burgers, we need more vegetarian options. Save the animals, kill the burger joints.

    • As a staunch meat lover I actually agree with this sentiment, if only so my vegetarian friends will stop with all the whining.

        +1. Vegetarians are insufferable.

        You really should focus your energy on converting them. Dangle bacon in front of their noses every chance you get. Trust me, it’ll be a struggle for sure, but they’ll come around.

          yeah, try that and let us know what happens.

      I’m holding out hope that one day we can find a way to turn complaining vegetarians into some renewal form of fuel and end our dependence on oil once and for all.

        i’m holding out hope that one day we can all realize how brutal and cruel it is to eat animals.

    i don’t know, that menu looks pretty enticing. check out the available (veggie) burger options: fried pickles, avocado, fried egg, cucumbers, grilled onions, kosher pickles, spinach… AND cheap fries. i will eat there.

    I would really love a decent place to take out Indian food.

      isn’t there a decent indian take out at connecticut and L?

      • DF

        Heritage India is solid and they deliver.

    • Not much in the Dupont area, but Chicken and Rice over on H St does excellent Indian take-out.

    • Rococo

      Not cheap but the best available is Rasika at M and New Hampshire which does carry out. Also the new Heritage on P near 17th above Cafe Luna. Personal taste but I don’t care for the other fast carryout type places in the neighborhood.

    Looking forward to it, but everyone should keep in mind that 2-3 months DC construction time = 6-12 months in reality.
