Major Progress at Bareburger coming to Dupont

by Prince Of Petworth February 8, 2016 at 10:22 pm 14 Comments


In happier awning news – Bareburger got a bunch of new ones and proper signage at the former Cosi space in Dupont.  You can check out Bareburger’s menus here.

This is right next door the to the former five guys burger spot (now a 7-Eleven). Also not far from where the Smashburger closed in 2014.  Updates when they announce an opening date.

1647 20th St, NW (at R just off Connecticut Ave.)

    If you are trying to suggest that they won’t succeed here because five guys and smashburger both closed, you are dead wrong, because bareburger is awesome!

    A burger chain. So glad we finally got one in DC. Yay.

    Dupont is SO 2005. Bring these places to Petworth – We’d HAPPILY take a Bareburger. Or a Sweetgreen. Or a Takorean…. or anything fast-casual.

      Yeah ok

      No office workers in Petworth. Don’t move to a residential only neighborhood of low density rowhouses and wonder why there are no fast-casual restaurants on your doorstep.

        This Petworth office worker would like to politely disagree. It would be really nice to have lunch options beyond Sala Thai, Subway, Wendy’s, and various El Salvadorian and Mexican places on 14th St.

          You can politely disagree all you want, but that doesn’t change the reality that Petworth doesn’t have nearly the office-worker density that Dupont has.

      why did you pick 2005?
      i assume people still live in Dupont now, right?

    Wait, wasn’t this space turning into a 7-Eleven? What happened to that? (not that I am complaining *at all* that it isn’t anymore, if it ever was)

      The 7/11 has opened in the small retail bay next door to this.

    Was disappointed that Smashburger was there only a hot minute – felt like the hype and build up was way overblown. Guess they couldn’t compete with Five Guys, BGR and Shake Shack all nearby.

    On the opposite tip I think Beefsteak is great.

    Their organic sign is more conceptual art than anything else. Little to none of the meat is organic. It is just a label and there is no USDA standard for “organic.” “Certified Organic” is an entirely different matter
