Union Kitchen is coming to Barracks Row at the location of the former Subway shop, 430 8th Street, SE. The story was first reported by Daniel J. Sernovitz in Washington Business Journal.
The café/grocery will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and offer specialty grocery items and housewares in the 1400 s.f. storefront space. Owners are aiming at opening in October.
This comes as good news for a troubled block of Barracks Row where the now-closed Tandoor and the notorious Popeye’s once lived. Subway closed up shop at the location in February of 2020. As reported by CHC in March of this year, the north end of the block will soon feature Mason & Greens, Sustainable Dry Goods | Grocer. See here: https://bit.ly/3vUI40n .
Union Kitchen, a local chain which bills itself as a “food business accelerator,” is headquartered at 1369 New York Avenue, (see here: https://www.unionkitchen.com/ ). Neighbors in Northeast are familiar with one of Union Kitchen’s 8 outlets at 538 3rd Street, NE.
