Ah this is magnificent. Last week a reader noted the new paint job at old Kabob House spot (and the original Pizzeria Paradiso location) on P Street. ChiKo here we come:

Over the summer the Washington Business Journal reported:

“ChiKo, the super-popular Chinese and Korean restaurant that opened about a year ago on Barracks Row, is coming to Dupont Circle.

The restaurant aims to open by the end of the year.”


Ed. Note: Don’t sleep on Obelisk next door either, I still love that place!

Ed. Note: I un-ironically love this.

From an email:

“Chefs Scott Drewno & Danny Lee, and their restaurant CHIKO are partnering with Slim Jim and special guest Chefs Gerald Addison and Chris Morgan, to deliver a one-of-a-kind pop up experience October 26.

Scott & Danny alongside Maydan will be featuring a Chinese-Korean x Slim Jim inspired menu for the DC area CHIKO, in a wildly popular event series called “CHIKO After Dark.”

Scott’s love for Slim Jim was covered in an article written by Bloomberg last June. The Slim Jim team saw this as an opportunity to work with one of the country’s best culinary teams (and palates) to encourage foodies everywhere to think about Slim Jim less as a “guilty pleasure” and more as pleasurable, fun food…PERIOD.

The early word on Chiko is very, very good. This could be very cool too:

“CHIKO is the first restaurant from The Fried Rice Collective. Chefs Danny Lee and Scott Drewno pair modern cooking techniques with traditional Chinese and Korean flavors, while Drew Kim provides his passion for hospitality ensuring a unique fine casual dining experience. The After Dark Series is an idea born from years of collaborative efforts by Chefs Drewno and Lee. This series will offer an opportunity for both local and national chefs to have a creative space to experiment.

The CHIKO After Dark Series will offer an array of dishes created by CHIKO and the guest chefs, in addition to the rest of the CHIKO menu being available. Each After Dark popup will have a food theme, with the first featuring Thai cuisine with Chef Alex McCoy. Chef McCoy will be offering three dishes; Pad Mee Korat, Hoi Lai Nam Prik Pao, and Khao Soi.

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.”
