423 8th Street, SE

Hot Dog Haven, DC-3, closed back in June 2016. Eater DC reported:

“Fledgling restaurant group The Fried Rice Collective — helmed by Mandu co-founder Danny Lee, Matchbox Food Group co-founder Drew Kim, and Scott Drewno, the award-winning, dim sum-making chef who left The Source at the end of April — plans to introduce itself to the D.C. dining scene via a collaborative project slotted for Barracks Row.”

    That collection of chefs is super promising, can’t wait to see what they come up with!

  • CapitalDame

    This sounds awesome! Excited for something different!

    Do they know what fledgling means? I think “emerging” would have been a better word choice, unless the writer was trying to slam the restaurant group.

    • MadMax

      Well it was written by Eater DC, not exactly the NYT of food news.

  • John

    Cool cool cool! I miss the easy take-out that DC-3 provided, but I’m glad to see that this block will be getting some good eats.

    • MadMax

      The city is also sorely lacking in good hot dog spots. Burger options galore, but the sister meat+bun combo is so underrepresented.

  • Carey

    Does anybody know if the DC3 at Dulles is still open?

    • MadMax

      Yes, and if I recall they are expanding to other airports (where the theme goes over better).

    • Matt

      The one at BWI is at least.

    Nice! I feel like it’s been a while since our neighborhood got a cool new place.
