Cusbah’s Comeback, Plus More Intel

Mini news bites for the morning

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

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]

Renovation report

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]

Delivery wire has a feature on Munchery, looking how meals get from the commissary to the customer from this startup, which has a D.C. presence. [E]

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]
