Smashburger is officially coming to Red Meat Row. The burger chain, which has been eying the Dupont Circle neighborhood since before its Fairfax opening, is coming to 1739 Connecticut Ave. NW. WBJ's Mike Neibauer strings together a signage permit and other clues to reveal the exact location of the new burger joint. A spokeswoman for the restaurant told Eater that the restaurant will open in June.
This will be DC's second Smashburger. The CEO of the Denver-based company has said he wants to open several outposts of the chain in the region, which of course is not lacking in burger options. In Dupont Circle alone it joins such competitors as BGR, Shake Shack and Black & Orange.
Editor's Note: The story has been updated, as a spokesperson now says June is the projected opening date.
