“Rochambeau [raw-shahn-boh]
Noun. The game of Rock Paper Scissors (as three words, ro cham beau). The syllables called out by players of Rock Paper Scissors to synchronize their timing.

10th and Franklin St, NE

Here’s a great update on the “gourmet food hall with 8-10 independent food vendors, a bar, and a grocery market” coming to Egewood/Brookland. WDCEP posts an interview with the owner:

“Captain Cookie is about to launch a second location and incubator space to help local food businesses scale. Named “Tastemakers” the 9,000 sq ft incubator space will open in Ward 5’s Brookland neighborhood in early September. There will be industrial kitchen space for local food companies, a small grocery store, and another Captain Cookie storefront. The store will feature 6-8 food vendors and have a bar.”

The liquor license placard for Tastemakers at 2800 10th Street, NE says:

“New Class “C” Restaurant with 50 seats and a Total Occupancy Load of 95. Restaurant will feature a gourmet food hall with 8-10 independent food vendors, a bar, and a grocery market. Community Kitchen will offer cooking classes, tastings, and kitchen memberships for local food professionals.”

Holy mackerel.

I took a peek inside and though the space was still pretty rough the folks I spoke with said they were hoping to open early Fall. STAY TUNED.
