Thanks to a tipster for sending word that the former Shawarma Spot has been leased to Yamas Mediterranean Grill. This will be Yamas’ 2nd restaurant in DC – they opened one at 16th and U on New Hampshire back in May 2014. The Shawarma Spot most recently closed back in August after a roller coaster of openings and closings. Stay tuned for an opening date for Yamas when it’s announced.

    I haven’t been to the DC Yamas, but used to live around the corner from the Bethesda one and ordered takeout quite frequently. Pretty good food.

    Wasn’t too impressed with Yamas at 16th/NH/U, and it’s hard to justify going there with Greek Spot a few blocks away. It always seems empty when I walk by in the evenings.

      We went once. The pita came out of a bag. Won’t be back.

      You mean Mediterranean Spot?

    Nice, I like that they offer Cava style salads.
    Any word on what’s coming to the old Meskerem space? There’s definitely some work going on there and I saw a help wanted sign last week.
