From a press release:

“Josh and Kelly Phillips and the Destination Unknown Restaurants team opened Espita in 2016 as an ode to their love for Mezcal and Oaxacan cuisine. Since opening, Espita has been a leader in Mezcal’s growing popularity on the East Coast and a Mexican staple for Washingtonians. When the group opened Taqueria Las Gemelas and Destino in Union Market District’s La Cosecha in 2021, they realized that their new concepts encompassed everything they loved about Espita and then some. With this realization in mind and after months of trying to find the perfect spot for Ghostburger’s first standalone location, they decided that opening Ghostburger in the place it originally took off was a perfect full circle moment. Ghostburger will officially open on August 29th, 2022, and will be the first standalone location of the growing brand. Read More


3000 12th Street, NE via Primrose DC

Thanks to Ryan for sharing: “a big shout out to my friends at Primrose in Brookland. EASILY the best value plate in the city is their HH burger w/ a side salad & frites, $12. Unbelievable burger, incredible value. Eat at the bar.”

Happy hour is “Every Monday – Friday from 5:30 – 7:30 at the bar we offer $8 wines as well as discounts on some of our most popular dishes.”

Ed. Note: I’m trying to confirm whether or not the HH burger deal is $12 or $15 but either way in 2022 not too shabby with salad and frites included though there was a time… You can see other best burger options here and here.

“Dear PoPville,

There has been a sign for Z Burger at the convenience store (formerly Four Seasons, now DC Supermart) at South Dakota and Delafield St NE for months – maybe a year?? When I was there last night, I asked about it and the owner said it will open by the end of this month. Read More
