2434 18th Street, NW Saturday night

Getting very close to Oven Baked Chicken in the old Meskerem space. Now hiring:



Now this is curious. Back in February a liquor license placard was posted for Phoenix Restaurant Lounge but after the Oppadak signage was posted it seemed that had passed. Perhaps not. A reader reports the Phoenix neon signage that sprouted Saturday night (see photo above.) Perhaps it’ll be party (Saturday) nights and Baked Oven Chicken days? STAY TUNED.

    Hahahaha…. that is so strange.
    (Also this is probably going to sound kind of snooty but I’m almost glad the hiring sign is in Korean. Even though I like Bul, when they opened I found the staff’s total lack of understanding of the Korean names of the menu items incredibly annoying. I suppose most people don’t speak Korean so it’s understandable but some basic knowledge would be nice…)

      I think that comes down to staff training. You don’t need to be able to form full sentences in a foreign language, but at least be able to read the menu items with the correct pronunciation.

    This seems like the sort of place where you meet your next ex-wife.

    I’m so sick of lazy marketers relying on near-naked women to sell their business. How UNcreative. And Pretty Girl Parties? Just offensive. At least they made it an easy decision for me.

      Not to mention the creepy guys leering in the background of the picture.
