DUPONT CIRCLE— Guy Fieri's going to be in town Friday filming "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." Borderstan's been sniffing around to find out where (it looks like around the 1800 M St. NW block), but most leads are turning up dead (Bub & Pop's sounded like a plausible location, but a company spokesperson tells Eater it isn't them. "Wish it was true," says the restaurant's Arlene Wagner). [Borderstan]

DOWNTOWN— Banh Mi shop BonMi is closing its D.C. brick and mortar operation. The food truck will remain operational. [PoP]
