Au Bon Pain Smo Bon Pain…Thanks to Jonathan Padget for sharing:
“I rather like @laMadeleine — it’s Tex-French! — and I’ll be happy to have one near #DupontCircle at 1130 Connecticut Avenue NW in @GoldenTriDC. Bonjour y’all!”
Check out their menus here and stay tuned for an opening date.
It’s becoming a bloodbath. This is becoming worse than the Quiznos cull of ’14. Thanks to Anita for sending from the “H and north cap location NW.” Updates, as always, when we learn who takes over the space.

Thanks to Allegra Harpootlian for sending: “Good Wednesday surprise: Little Sesame is being built right across the street from my office.”
Thanks to Brianna for sending:
“Are ABP and Panera owned by the same company? Bummed ABP is closing at the Reagan Building. Love its morning oatmeal bar.”
1990 M Street, NW
That was fast! The former Pizza Hut space has already been transformed. Thanks to Leah, Mona, and Ben for sending the news that Kung Fu Tea and Tang (Noodle Soup) have opened Next door to Nagomi Izakaya.
Peep Tang’s menu after the jump. (more…)
Thanks to Shubha J for sending:
“L’Enfant Plaza eatery update: Rice Bar to replace Pie Five, which closed many months ago.”
What’s the best, current, lunch option in L’Enfant?
1214 18th Street, NW
Good news for chicken heads. My sources deep in the fast casual chicken world have a juicy tidbit for us today – Chick-Fil-A cometh to 18th Street. I’m hearing 1214 18th Street, NW (near Nando’s buckle up son) and Eighth Street Lounge, Shake Shack etc. It’s not clear exactly which space it’s taking, not sure if the Rabbit Hole fell through or if the Eritrean Cultural & Civic Center is being split. These spaces were formerly home to MIA Lounge, Lupe Mexican Cantina and Sesto Senso
Anyway I give this scuttlebutt an 87% accuracy rating.
Neighborhood naming controversy aside – Ryan reports:
“Game changer…Soon to open Navy Yard Whole Foods has a covered patio with outdoor TVS”
I feel like we may be setting the bar a bit too low for game changing..though it could be a cool spot for lunch. T-9 days to opening.
