9th and Q Street, NW
Or so I’m told. Back in May I shared some scuttlebutt that a Japanese concept from the owners of Chaplin’s was coming to the former Shaw’s Bijou/French Quarter Brasserie space. French Quarter Brasserie closed in January and Shaw Bijou closed in January of 2017. Chaplin’s is located down the street at 9th and P Street, NW and opened back in 2014. I know hear it’ll be called Zeppelin and should open in a couple of months. STAY TUNED.

Thanks to Jason for sending:
“any information on Olive Bistro and Cafe coming into the old Bread + Salt location in Tenleytown?”
Tenleytown Main Streets reported:
“The latest entrant into the Tenleytown restaurant scene will offer a Mediterranean-influenced menu, with a strong emphasis on Turkish cuisine.
The new restaurant will offer full-service lunch and dinner during the week, with plans to expand into breakfast on the weekends. A late night bar will serve signature drinks with a Turkish spin, while on the side patio they plan for hookah to be available. And, of course, patrons can enjoy a special blend of freshly brewed Turkish coffee.”

Thanks to Nora for sending. Though I will certainly miss the name ‘Nice & Quick Mart’, that really is an awesome name, this has nice potential for a good lunch spot. Stay tuned for an opening date.
Ed. Note: Charcoal Town also contributed to ending our Shawarma drought.

Thanks to Ben for sending: “100 Montaditos closes in navy yard? Tables and chairs gone.” Ed. Note: Their phone number has also been disconnected.
100 Montaditos opened up in Navy Yard near Bluejacket back in December 2014.

Update from the owner of All Souls:
“All Souls will be opening a new concept in The Apollo building on H Street, NE. The space will be located through the alley next to WeWork on 7th Street and will be called The Little Grand. While this is a new concept, we will not venture too far from what we do at All Souls, using the highest quality ingredients, maintaining affordable prices and trying to give the best service possible. The other similarity is The Little Grand will be a small, simple bar serving craft beer, cocktails, and wine but with the added bonus of pizza. We are very excited to be part of H Street and the Apollo community.” (more…)
