“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if anyone else in the PoPville community has heard anything about the Eisenhower Memorial going up in the southwest? I work for the Federal Government in the Southwest, and while I don’t work in the Department of Education building, I work right by there. There aren’t really any lunch options in the area besides the food trucks by the L’Enfant Metro. Due to the limited options, my coworkers and I generally get lunch from the food trucks and eat at one of the tables set out in front of the Dept. of Ed. While there is one other spot in the general vicinity to sit and eat lunch, it’s very limited. I just heard about the Eisenhower Memorial that is going up in front of the Dept. of Ed. and over the spot where we, and many of the other Federal Government employees in the area, eat their lunch on a daily basis. While I fully support a memorial to President Eisenhower, I’m a little miffed by the fact that it will effectively wipe out our only lunch spot in the vicinity. Has anyone else heard anything about this Memorial? It seems like it has been in the works for a while, but I only just heard about it.”

Ed. Note: In May Curbed reported:

“Eisenhower Memorial design revisions meet Commission of Fine Arts largely with disapproval

…a revised final design of the planned Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial met with the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) with much discussion and largely more to be desired for. Still, the final concept of the design needs to be approved. This meeting was simply to approve the revisions to the design.”

SeoulSpice opened a location in NoMa (145 N Street, NE) last year. You can see their menu here.

“SEOULSPICE’s menu features made-to-order Korean favorites, such as rice bowls (bibimbap) and korritos (kimbap burritos), as well as street tacos and salads. These bases are enhanced with four protein options–beef, chicken, spicy pork, and tofu– and fresh vegetables, including bean sprouts, corn, carrots, cucumbers, Korean radish, kale slaw, and kimchi (pickled Korean cabbage). SEOULSPICE offers four gourmet sauces made in-house–Korean hot sauce, creamy sriracha, cilantro-lime ranch, and ginger-carrot–plus fresh herbs and toppings. The menu also features three sides: “the” egg, marinated in a sweet soy base; avocado; and jars of kimchi.” (more…)

From an email:

“Curated by Executive Chef and Founder Dimitri Moshovitis, the new menu is inspired by Moshovitis’ traditional Greek upbringing and his penchant for fresh, crisp vegetables.

New additions include Greek Minestrone with Harissa, a vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free dish heavy on colorful fruits and veg and elevated with a kick of harissa; a Fall Vegetable medley with brussels sprouts, butternut squash, carrots and cauliflower, all lightly charred and spiced simply with salt and pepper; and sweet and crunchy Carrots & Currants tossed in lemon juice, that can be used as a topper on any grain bowl, salad, or pita.

Also new to the menu is a Yellow Pepper Tahini dressing with a smoky flavor profile from roasted yellow peppers, and a permanent addition – new greens mix SplendidGreens. A crunchy combination of greens including romaine, escarole, chicory endive, belgian endive, and radicchio, SplendidGreens is a perfect base for a salad or Greens+Grains bowl.

CAVA’s signature housemade juices and teas are also getting a boost with Rosemary Limeade, Apple Cinnamon Sage, Blackberry Orange Shrub, and more.”

Thanks to Edward for sending:

“Not sure if you fully “confirmed” the Naf Naf Grill coming to 19th St, but saw this today!”

This is the former Protein Bar space (and Cosi before them.)

Naf Naf’s website says:

“Naf Naf Grill is the premium destination for fresh, authentic Middle Eastern food. Oven baked pitas, hand cut salads, and freshly prepared sauces all served as an accompaniment to award-winning shawarma and falafel.”

Check out their menu here. Stay tuned for an opening date.

Georgetown’s new Sweetgreen is “all set for Friday, September 15th!”

“Sweetgreen Georgetown is nearly 1,700 sq. ft. larger than the brand’s original location on M Street – which opened 10 years ago this August. The added space brings several new features to the Georgetown community, including: mobile + online ordering for easy pickup; a full menu offering to include hot toppings like sesame roasted tofu and curry-marinated chickpeas; two levels of indoor seating + outdoor patio space; and parking – making it even easier to grab lunch + dinner on the go.”

District Taco is truly delicious. I am literally drooling after simply typing their name. So, so very good. I know what I’m having for lunch today. I’ll be grabbing a bite in Tenleytown at 4600 Wisconsin Ave, NW (photo above.) But you can find all their locations here. And if the lure of their deliciousness is not enough – do it simply to spite this jackwagon:

We last spoke about District Taco back in early August when they donated a portion of sales to help “purchase school supplies for underprivileged children”.

Again, you can also find them in Dupont at 1919 M Street, NW; Eastern Market at
656 Pennsylvania Ave, SE; Metro Center at 1309 F Street, NW; and Virginia locations here.

Jonathan reports:

“Congrats to Chef Brian’s Comfort Kitchen soft opening. Only letting ten people in at a time yesterday. Food was tasty and portions are massive. Staff was incredibly friendly and appreciative – they are working out the kinks and I think it will be a great lunch spot addition to the neighborhood when it opens.”
