624 E Street, NW

On the heels of Matchbox taking over the old Hen Quarter space on the other side of E Street comes some more good lunching news for Penn Quarter – I hear that “There’s a Sweetgreen going into the old Taylor Gourmet spot at 624 E St NW. Coming this May.” I give this a 73% 93% accuracy rating. [Update: Douglass Development just like a tweet about this, so I’m taking that as a very good sign.] Fingers crossed and stay tuned!!

1214 18th Street, NW

On October 18th I posted some scuttlebutt about a likely Chick Fil A location here. There were MANY opinions.

Thanks to all who messaged the confirmation from Washington Business Journal:

“The fast-food poultry purveyor has signed a 15-year lease — with 14 years of optional extensions — with an affiliate of Douglas Development Corp. for 1214 18th St. NW, a couple blocks south of Dupont Circle.”

Ed. Note: One day I will find out what WBJ has on the Jemal family/Douglas Development Corp. Kidding, kidding. Kinda.

Standby for an opening date and the upcoming Chicken Wars with Nando’s down the block.
