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!!
No, Kostas, THANK YOU!! And congratulations. May The Greek Deli thrive for many more years.

In the center aisle toward Buffalo & Bergen is Philly Wing Fry, the new kid on the Union Market block. From Top Chef fan favorite Kwame comes a simple menu of chicken wings, waffle fries, a Philly cheesesteak, and spicy mushroom sandwich. The latter two are among the best I’ve had in Washington, D.C. . . . . . . #phillywingfry #unionmarketdc #yelpeatsdc #eaterdc #topchef #districtfoodies #districteats #dcfoodsters #dcfoodies #dcfood #mydccool #dctography #igdc #theotherdc #washingtondc #instadc #acreativedc #bythings #storefrontcollective #minimalism #foodhall #yelp #districtofcolumbia #exploredmv #dclife #northeastdc #phillycheesesteak #edibledc #restaurantdesign
