Pop-up Restaurant in the Works for Park View

Future home of EatsPlace at 3607 Georgia Avenue

Here’s a little news item reported on DC Mud a few weeks ago that probably didn’t get on many peoples’ radar. The owners of 3607 Georgia Avenue are in the early stages of redeveloping the property into EatsPlace, a pop-up restaurant space. According to DC Mud and their Website, it sounds like they’ll be using Kickstarter to raise fund to renovate the building.

The drive behind this project is Katy Chang, who hopes to have renovations ensue this year with an opening for next Spring.

I sat down with Chang in May of this year to discuss her concept and really liked what I heard. In essence, she wants to create  a restaurant/food business incubator that will have pop-up restaurants. It would also be a place where small food producers could make and share food with the neighborhood. “It would be like the popular ‘chef for a week’ or ‘guest chef’ idea meets Seasonal Pantry or Smucker Farms” Chang stated.

It certainly sounds promising to me and I wish her all the luck in getting this project up and running.
