Sweet Mango is Dead, Long Live 3701 Jerk Station Officially Opening Tuesday, For Now…Development Slated to Come

3701 New Hampshire Ave, NW

Back in March we were saddened to learn that Sweet Mango Cafe had closed “until further notice” across from the Petworth Metro. Now they’re back – sorta – 3701 Jerk Station had a soft opening yesterday. I stopped in yesterday and the owner was so happy – he was giving away jerk chicken for free to celebrate. He told me the official opening is Tuesday and they hope to lease space here when the new development comes. On that front UrbanTurf reports a 21 unit building is coming:

“The 65-foot, five-story residential development will have one and two-bedroom residential units on floors two through five and there will be retail on the ground floor.”

The owner of 3701 Jerk Station (who wishes he named it DC Jerk Station but oh well) says he hopes to lease the retail space in the new development too. Stay tuned all around and in the meantime – enjoy some jerk chicken!
