Mandu’s Summer Chef Line-up For Anju – late night bar snacks pop up on K Street

453 K Street, NW – next door to the planned ‘another ray’s joint still coming?

From a press release:

“Danny Lee, Chef and Co-owner of Mandu, and Chef Jonah Kim are excited to announce the summer line-up of guest chefs participating in Anju, the restaurant’s monthly late-night pop up specializing in Korean-inspired bar snacks. With the exception of July, Anju will be held on the first Friday of every month at Mandu’s K St. location from 10:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. No reservations are required and seats will be available first-come first-serve at the restaurant’s bar and first floor dining room.

Next month, Chef Kyle Bailey of Neighborhood Restaurant Group and acclaimed Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac will bring their plays on Korean bar snacks to Anju guests. August will see Katsuya Fukushima, Executive Chef and Co-owner of Daikaya, collaborate with Chefs Lee and Kim, and in September, Chef and Co-owner of Water & Wall and Maple Ave Restaurant, Tim Ma, will take the reins and showcase his bar snack spins to attending guests.

“It was always Jonah’s and my intention to collaborate with chefs we personally admire and respect for these pop ups,” says Lee. “I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in mind and how they play with Korean ingredients.”

Anju menus will be split into smaller and entrée-sized portions and will include an extensive selection of meat, seafood, vegetable and noodle snacks. Plates will be priced at $6 per person or $15 for a choice of three. Entrees will be $15 each. Prices exclude beverages, tax and gratuity. The complete list of chefs and Anju dates is listed below.
