“Dear PoPville,

I have a question I thought you might be able to help with. I bought a sweater last fall from a guy in the outdoor portion of Eastern Market who sold mostly vintage/dad-style sweaters and shirts. It ended up being my favorite sweater and I’d love to get another but I haven’t been able to find him since Read More

These dining concepts, just blocks from the nation’s capital and across from Eastern Market, bring new excitement to Washington with community-focused hospitality and a celebration of the flavors, details and moments that bring people together and provide comfort at home.

“Dear Acqua al 2 family, friends and neighbors:

It is with a heavy heart that we have had to close Acqua al 2 at our Capital Hill location in Washington, DC. It has been a true joy serving you all and getting to know you for the last 10 years.

“Dear PoPville,

Since I have found innumerable places through your site and comments section over the years, I felt I should give one back. There are a group of guys serving breakfast burritos, tacos, and quesadillas under the name “El Piquin” that have been coming to Eastern Market for about the last five years. They have a restaurant in Essex, MD, but they seem to have no presence whatsoever on yelp, social media, etc. outside of a few shout-outs from Eastern Market itself. They took a long hiatus due to COVID but are now back at it on Sundays and Tuesdays and are better than ever. I have been going religiously for years now because the food is really that good (the hot sauce is other-worldly), and I would really like them to survive. Great group of guys, so I wanted to get the word out, even if that means longer lines for me.”
