Taqueria Habanero not sitting by quietly while Mezcalero expands. The Taqueria Habanero vs Mezcalero wars rage on. Thanks to Elle for sending the photo above announcing a new location coming to 8147 Baltimore Ave in College Park. For those not familiar with Taqueria Habanero, I pity you. Also:

Zenebech with the official announcement!!
“We are officially re-opening on Friday August, 24th at 5pm. We hope to see you for dinner!!!”
Zenebech has been closed since December when a fire gutted next door neighbor #1 Juicy-Cajun Seafood, damaging Zenebech. Zenebech Injera had only recently reopened, after moving from Shaw, in August 2017. Let’s give them a big welcome back next Friday!
The Coupe is going through some changes in the next month. We’ve had summer hours for about a month now (weekdays: 7a-2p; weekends: 7a-4p) and have been working diligently on some awesome projects that will not only better The Coupe for the customers and community, but also for our amazing staff.
On August 26th at 4pm, the Coupe will close down for just over 10 days. (more…)

Thanks to Jae for sending the update that Ministry had a private event and “opens next week.” Ed. Note: Not sure if that means later this week or next week. At any rate it’s soon! Their website lists staff positions open and says:
“At The Ministry, we love all things coffee, food, and wine.
It is the heart and soul of what we do. Coffee is our energy, food is our motivator, and wine is our joy. We believe in basking in the moments that are meant to be unrushed. We seek to provide an inviting space that encourages conversations, engagement, and community. (more…)

I believe this location had been closed at least a year, right? Thai-Xing opened their second location, 2020 9th St, NW, near 9:30 Club back in 2014. I’ve always felt that the original location was superior but that could be just cause I’m an old dude. Anyway, great news!!

Thanks to Josh for passing on word from Scion:
“Scion Dupont will permanently close for business Tuesday August 7, 2018. As we approached the culmination of our ten year lease we have been able to reflect upon what an honor it has been to serve the Dupont Circle community but also recognize the time has come to make way for something new and exciting! It has been our greatest honor to be a part of this neighborhood and we will miss the many friendships we have made over craft beer, burgers and of course, brunch! (more…)
