It’s been a while since I first posted about the prospect of a new food pop-uppery coming to Georgia Avenue in September 2012, but I’ve been told by owner Katy Chang that construction has begun and she is shooting for a Spring opening. This couldn’t be better news.

Elevation DC also interviewed her recently and were able to provide the following:

EatsPlace will give guest chefs from all over a chance to test out new concepts or get experience in a restaurant setting. On the customer side, “they [will] just think of it as the neighborhood restaurant that happens to have interesting menus.” The first few chefs are lined up: the first will be a native Washingtonian doing a “refined, elevated soul food menu,” with a live jazz band. Chang, who makes dumplings under the brand name Baba’s Cooking School, will sell dumplings either alongside pop-ups or to fill any gaps in programming. “Think of me as the house band.”

I’m definitely looking forward to checking this spot out when it opens, and will provide more information as it comes in.
