Dining Scene Changing in Shaw, Silver Spring and Union Market

Closings and relocations abound

The original Quarry House Tavern

Chef Andrew Evans January 29 served his last plate of house-smoked meats at Union Market. “We love our BBQ Joint fans!” staff at the food stall proclaimed in a farewell note. A larger outpost on 14th Street fizzled out within just nine months of opening.

Fellow short-timer Chao Ku February 5 threw in the towel after eight frustrating months. “I tried to keep it going as long as I could, and it’s just not happening,” owner John Fielding told Washingtonian. He cited construction delays — and possibly the Trump presidency — as overwhelming obstacles.

The neighboring A&D bar may be leaving Shaw as well.

“Our landlord has chosen not to exercise our lease renewal, so we will be looking for a new home,” Team A&D explained in a note posted in the front window. The last service there is projected to be April 23.

On a happier note, Quarry House Temporary is closing up shop in anticipation of moving home. Co-owner Jackie Greenbaum told Washingtonian the displaced watering hole should be back in its post-fire ravaged digs come spring.
