Three Openings You May Have Missed


Another week, another slew of restaurant openings. In case you missed them, here are three spots that recently added new locations in D.C.:

Nando’s Peri-Peri 

4231 Wisconsin Ave. NW

The international flame-grilled chicken chain has taken over the Tenleytown space that Armand’s Pizza occupied for nearly 40 years. The architects have tried to retain as much of the original structure as possible, including the old skylights, dormers, and rafters.

Cafe Deluxe 

2201 M St. NW

This American bistro opened a new location in the West End on Wednesday—its second spot in the District and fifth in the region. Located on the first level of the new Hilton Garden Inn, Cafe Deluxe is open from breakfast through dinner with dishes like grilled salmon, braised boneless short ribs, and chicken pot pie. The bar offers happy hour from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on weekdays with $4 Stella drafts and house wines, $5 margaritas and cosmos, and $1 off all draft beers. 


1829 M St. NW

In addition to its Takoma shop and farmers market appearances, you can now find Soupergirl’s all-vegan, Kosher-certified soups in Dupont. The rotating menu includes flavors like curried red lentil split pea, triple ginger carrot apple, and cream of asparagus. Don’t forget there are also salads like white bean carrot dill and quinoa chickpea tahini.
