Shake Shack fare.
UrbanTurf has evolved its weekly Neighborhood Eats column into Top 5 Bites, in which food and drink contributor Jamie Liu highlights the most important food stories of the week.
A Shake Shack for Union Station?
While just a rumor at this point, there is evidence that a fourth Shake Shack location could be opening up in DC. The City Paper’s Jessica Sidman reported earlier this week on a recently registered LLC named “Shake Shack Union Station Washington, D.C.”, an indication that the Danny Meyer burger spot may have its sights set on the iconic train station. A Shake Shack spokesperson could not provide confirmation at this point.
Atlas of D.C.
This week brings big beer news for DC. Starting on September 2 at Meridian Pint, the city’s fourth brewery Atlas Brew Works will debut three brews. For the rest of the week, the beers will debut at other bars around town: Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown on Tuesday, Big Hunt on Wednesday, Iron Horse on Thursday, Churchkey on Friday, Smith Commons on Saturday, and Libertine and Black Squirrel on Sunday. The new brews include Rowdy, an American-style rye; District Common, a California Common or steam beer with Czech Saaz hops; and the mysteriously named NSFW.
Mad Fox on the Loose
In other beer news, highly regarded Mad Fox Brewing Company will be opening Mad Fox Taproom at the former Town Hall space at 2218 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map) in Glover Park. The new spot will have 24 beers on draft and cask, and serve typical bar fare and a selection of small plates. The brewery makes a wide variety of beer styles that vary by season.
The Long Road to Mandalay
Long-awaited and delayed Burmese restaurant Mandalay will finally open its second location at 1501 9th Street NW in Shaw on September 8, according to Washington City Paper. For the grand opening, Chef Aung Myint will cook a buffet that includes vegetarian and vegan options for $25. Reservations can be made on the restaurant website.
On the Lamb
Border Springs Farm has vacated its space in Union Market, according to the Washington Post. Owner Craig Rogers notes that rather than the market environment for selling meat he expected, the focus was on prepared foods. Rogers has moved to Union Kitchen, but hopes to open a DC retail shop in addition to his presence at FreshFarm markets.
