A liquor license placard has been posted for Shouk in Union Market:
“A new casual, quick-service restaurant, serving 100% vegetarian Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food. Seating capacity of 32 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 32. Sidewalk Café
with 16 seats. No entertainment, performances or dancing.”
Shouk is “expected to open in early 2018 in The Edison at Union Market District.”

“The food is actually really good.
The breakfast is strangely addictive.
The coffee can be spectacular.
The junk food game is exceptionally tight.
Which brings us to the deals. It seems like they’re always doing big discounts on something, somewhere. Hoagiefest is perhaps Wawa’s biggest sale of the year, with a slew of its 10-inch sandwiches on sale for just $4.99.
You can eat healthy, too.”
Thanks to Mary for letting us know on Thursday. I stopped by for photos on Saturday and was told it was a plumbing situation. Mary updates us on Monday: “Still closed! Zengo in the same building is closed as well. May be a building issue.”
Normally these “Temporarily Closed” situations are forced closures by DOH but there were no red forced closure notices so this seems like a legit plumbing problem. Updates when we learn more. Please remain calm.

Back in September we learned that Maison Kayser was coming to 7th and Mass Ave, NW. Looks like another one is coming to F Street too – across from the National Press building between 13th and 14th. My people familiar with Maison Kayser tell me that this is very good news indeed.
Check out some of their menus here. Stay tuned for opening dates.

From an email. I read this email about 100 times. From that email I read 100 times:
“Start your Christmas fruitcake and tamales engines. . . . .
Right now, 30 pounds of dried fruit is soaking in Yadira Stamp’s kitchen. In liquor. In fact, it has been soaking for two years, waiting until it makes its way into some of the 130 fruitcakes the Panama native will bake this Christmas. . . . read the article in the Washington Post, written by Kristen Hartke.
