Well Jackie Greenbaum is taking her expertise and restaurant know-how into Washington, DC, and is planning to open a new place in
Jackie found a spot on 11th St NW near Lamont that previously housed a liquor store. It's a small space (45- 50 seats), but there could be room for a patio and maybe roof-top seating. The menu will be "authentic Mexican" (which is quite hard to find in DC IMO) with also hints to LA street food. This obviously is wide open since you can almost eat anything on the streets of LA.
The new place will also have a serious craft beer menu and lots of tequila and mezcal. Jackie's current chef at her eponymous restaurant, Diana Davila-Boldin, is consulting on the menu. And while only dining once with Boldin running the Jackie's Restaurant kitchen I was not bowled over. I meant to do a post on that dinner but it got lost in the mix.
The missus and I went with a friend and while we all liked our meals OK, none of the entrees were worth repeating (and I'm sorry to say it's been way too long to tell you what we tried). But maybe with more time under her belt Boldin is now off and running there. I would be willing to give her another try. But that's a another post.
To conclude, the yet-to-be-named establishment will keep things cheap - nothing over $15. But I'm guessing you'll easily be able to spend a decent amount if you're drinking craft beers or high-end tequila. Lord knows it's hard to find anything to drink in that neighborhood. It's like prohibition has taken hold over there. And yes, I am kidding!
