Food News: Good Cheap Eats Coming to 14th Street?


Are we finally going to get some good cheap food on the 14th Street NW corridor? Looks that way, hopefully. Nothing against the upscale places that have opened (or soon will) in Borderstan over the past few years, but we really can’t afford to drop $50 every time we don’t feel like cooking on a Tuesday night. (Yes, I am still waiting for a real Greek-owned diner… the type you find in Chicago or New York.)

Here’s the news from our friends at 14th & You:

“Devilish Burgers Headed to 14th Street.” Hot on the heels of the recent announcement of the forthcoming bakery and wine bar next to Marvin (“I’ll have a loaf of cinnamon bread and a glass of your 2003 Malbec please”), 14thandyou has received this nugget of info: the space down adjacent to the bake-oenology place, located at 2001 14th Street, will in fact be a “top-shelf” burger joint owned by Policy’s Omar Miskinyar and David Karim, and featuring creations from Policy chef Brian Murphy.

“More Info on “Table 14”; “World’s Best Philly Cheese Steak” Coming to 14th Street.” Metrocurean has an update today on the forthcoming establishment on 14th Street from the Local 16 guys… In other news, a quick peak inside the former 14U coffee shop seems to show renovations moving forward for the soon-to-arrive “JJs: World’s Best Philly Cheese Steaks“.
