Scuttlebutt: Pizza and a Crab Shack coming to Chevy Chase

5534 Connecticut Ave, NW

Last week we heard that Pumpernickel’s was going online only and that Arucola could be leaving too. My sources deep in the dough and the Bay share some promising replacement scuttlebutt.

Pumpernickel to be replaced by a legit pizza joint and Arucola to become a Crab Shack. I give this scuttlebutt accuracy a 93% chance. STAY TUNED.

Update: Eater DC has confirmed the crab shack: “a new full-service restaurant called Capital Crab and Seafood” is coming.
