ShopHouse Opens in Georgetown

August 22, 2013

ShopHouse in Georgetown is now open. The first of the fast-casual restaurants opened in Dupont Circle nearly two years ago, with a second following in West Hollywood, Calif. The menu at 28th and M Streets NW is the same as Dupont Circle, though the original spot has Laoation and other beer for sale. Georgetown is soft drink only, at least for the moment.

Developed by Chipotle, the concept largely follows the model of its parent, replacing Tex-Mex inspired components for Asian ones. Diners customize their rice or noodle bowl down a cafeteria-style assembly line, choosing a protein, vegetable, sauce, garnish, and one crunchy finish. Sustainable and fresh ingredients are at the core of budding chain’s philosophy. In keeping with the food stalls in cities like Bangkok and Singapore that inspire the food, flavors are bold – a flavor profile that has worked for cosmopolitan Washington and Los Angeles.
