There’s a combo...
There’s a new shop in Loudoun County looking to sell, of all combinations, coffee and guns. Bullets & Beans opened in Hamilton, but turns out it’s tougher to sell coffee than it is guns when a place is zoned for retail. The coffee portion of the business is still pending as they wait on permits. [Washingtonian]
After a brief closure, Flying Fish Coffee & Tea in Mt. Pleasant should reopen today. They’re coming off a new paint job and some minor improvements. [Borderstan]
Also on the delivery front
UberEats has discontinued its "instant" service in Washington. Their general restaurant delivery operation still remains; "instant" was a way to get pre-prepared items to customers faster. [Washingtonian]
It’s not frose but...
...what about frochata? Lyman’s Tavern’s horchata-inspired frozen beverages is back on the menu.
Back in business
Cusbah will not close after winning a legal batter with the restaurant’s landlord. "We don’t know what the future will hold but for now we’re happy we survived," the owners said in a statement to District Cuisine. [FT, DC]
