ADAMS MORGAN—Zenebech is up and running at its new location in Adams Morgan (2420 18th Street NW) and PoPville has the deets on its new menu — from lentil sambusa to tibs for days. The Ethiopian restaurant’s two-decade-long run in Shaw ended this spring; its new spot has a smaller kitchen.
BARRACKS ROW—Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema just wrapped up the week with a raving review of Asian fusion spot Chiko, trumpeting the fried rice and cumin lamb he’s “still dreaming” about.
DOWNTOWN—Stella Artois took the Ronald Reagan Building by storm last night, unveiling its new D.C. collaborative chalice with local art duo No Kings Collaborative. Check out the mural now at 631 T Street NW.
MULTIPLE LOCATIONS—Sweetgreen, prepping to debut its new Georgetown locale, just released a new lineup of salads that embrace the final days, and ingredients, of summer. Think: spicy Maryland crab and watermelon, as well as peaches, and goat cheese.
SHAW—Mobile Japanese kitchen Uzu plans to set up shop at Mirai (1314 Ninth Street NW) this weekend, serving its distinctive brand of Asian “comfort food” from 11 a.m to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, August 12, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 13.
