It's opening day for Tchoup's, the sandwich shop which has replaced the beloved-but-temporary Alfie's pop-up in Park View.
Po' boys are a major focus for Tchoup's (the name is inspired by New Orleans' Tchoupitoulas Street), served on bread from New Orleans. Find them in such varieties as fried catfish and fried oyster. The restaurant is also making its own pastrami. They'll also serve hot tamales, Nashville and Southern fried chicken, muffalettas, fried bologna, and a variety of burgers, a speciality of chef Alex McCoy. The menu is rounded out with some snacks (think pimento cheese dip and red beans and rice) and some fried seafood platters. Expect beer and some New Orleans cocktails, too.
Alfie's will eventually find a new home in D.C., but they have not announced a specific location.
