While summer can be a slower season for dining, eager restaurateurs and owners continue to work on the next wave of openings in D.C. From Korean pub food to a Latin food hall, here are the newcomers to keep an eye on throughout the summer months.
After a 2017 fire damaged the interior of what was then Mandu on 18th St., chef and owner Danny Lee vowed to rebuild the popular Korean restaurant. What took shape was a home for Anju, a Korean pub serving food meant to be paired with soju and other drinks. Think grilled meat skewers, bibimbap, and sides. Anju is expected to open in July.
