Conbini Cafe, the purveyor of self-styled “Japanese comfort food” that appeared inside Maketto founder Erik Bruner-Yang’s retail spot Shopkeepers earlier this year, is going mobile this month. Conbini chef Hiro Mitsui announced on social media that the cafe is closing Saturday, July 15; he plans to continue cooking at “pop-ups across the DMV.”

Per the Shopkeepers site, Coronation Cafe is expected to move in next.

Discount burgers are back

The Washington City Paper’s annual D.C. Burger Week promotion returns Sunday, July 23 through Sunday, July 30. The nearly two dozen restaurants that have signed on to serve a special $7 burger — the featured selections are a la carte only, and must be for dine-in service — include newcomers Franklin Hall, Triple Craft, and Tredici Enoteca.

Willing new pop-ups into being

The unveiling of Shaw’s zeitgeist-y Game of Thrones Pub has inspired the dreamers at Brightest Young Things to propose the temporary watering holes they’d most like to see in D.C. The Back to the Future plan would probably be the most commercially successful, but the Snakehole Lounge and Noah’s Arcade themes sound crazy fun. [BYT]
