New ShopHouse to open in Georgetown Aug. 19

In a year that has brought fast-casual Asian noodle joints aplenty -- Tom Yum District in Rosslyn, and the forthcoming Newton's Noodles downtown -- the original "Chipotle of Asian food" is welcoming a new arrival. D.C.'s second ShopHouse will open at 2805 M St. NW on Monday, Aug. 19.

Expect the same tastes that Tom Sietsema called the "best fast-food idea in years." On the pan-Asian menu: banh mi sandwiches, noodle and rice bowls, pickled and roasted veggies, and spicy curries that pack heat. The 40 seat Georgetown location will not serve beer or wine. It replaces Furin's Bakery, which inhabited the location for 27 years.

"It's exciting to have ShopHouse open in Georgetown in a cool, historic, early 20th century building that's not too far from our first location in Dupont Circle," said Tim Wildin, the restaurant's concept developer.

After debuting in D.C. in 2011, a Hollywood location opened in June. This will be ShopHouse's third location, with another California branch opening later this month. The Georgetown location will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
