“The Holidays are about giving and celebrating. They are about overindulgence and spending time with friends both new and old.
In that spirit DC9 is bringing back to life the much lauded Palena Burger!
It’s been five years since the acclaimed Palena closed its doors and the beloved burger graced the tables of DC dinners, and we miss it. Amber Bursik, chef at DC9, whom cooked at Palena for several years and cooked many of those Palena burgers herself thought this was the way she and DC9 could spread some holiday cheer to their guests.

Thanks to a reader for sending this rendering they found for 700 H Street, NE. First I’m hearing of this so not sure if this is still planned. The lettering is kind of small – does it look like it says delivering in 2017? Of course those dates often change but there is also a Shake Shack not too far away in Union Station. I’ll be sure to update if we learn more, STAY TUNED.

Inside 14th and Park Road, NW
Yesterday we wrote about the odd hours at the Z Burger in Columbia Heights. We got an update at 5:30pm yesterday from Katherine:
“Looks like it’s lights out for Z Burger. Just stopped by and no one was there. Fryers and grills removed, everything off, signage removed from doors, including the operating hours signage.”
Z Burger opened here back in 2013. Updates when we learn what becomes of the cool, historic space.
14th and Park Road, NW
A reader reported at 6:15pm last night: “just went to Z Burger at 14th and Park in Columbia Heights and they said they were closed and the staff was packing up a bunch of stuff. Any rumors if they’re closing?” Ed. Note: Their listed hours are from 11am until 10pm. A call to the store this morning at 11am rang repeatedly but there was no answer or voicemail.
Thanks to David for sending:
“Z Burger to Dupont? This was in the old BGR space this morning. Not sure if that means Z Burger is coming to this space or that there is a Z Burger a few blocks away (at P and 22).”
If it’s referring to the one P Street – well – oh my goodness. Oh. My. Goodness. If not, sup with the arrow? As always, STAY TUNED.
