“Good news! MGM Roast Beef is set to re-open on Friday February 7th 2020.

In July 2019 an electrical fire in the kitchen caused the 10 year old Northeast DC institution to shut down.

During the down time, Ryan Zaritsky worked on some new menu items to add to the popular line up of hand-carved roast turkey, top round and MGM’s famous brisket offerings.

NEW Additions:

MGM Smashburger – two fresh-ground patties that are a blend of MGM’s signature top round and brisket, grilled and served on a brioche roll with two slices of cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and mayo.

Steak & Cheese – fresh thin-sliced top round beef, grilled with onions and provolone, served in toasted sub roll with lettuce tomato and mayo.

Reuben – house braised corned beef, homemade slaw, 1000 Island, Swiss cheese on fresh griddled rye bread. (Also available is the No Kings Collective Rueben with No. 1 Sons Kimchi). 

Salmon Caesar Wrap – house grilled salmon filet served in a flour tortilla with a hand-tossed Caesar salad and spicy house dressing.

RE-OPENING Festivities:

Friday February 7th 11:00am
first 25 guests in line at 11:00am get one free sandwich of their choice.

First Responders Appreciation Event:  ALL MPD, EMS and DCFD first responders receive a free sandwich & drink as a “Thank You” from us.  We owe these first responders everything for containing the fire and limiting the damage.  We encourage the community to come out on Saturday and join us in thanking DC’s BRAVEST!

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.
