As first reported by Eat DC and then press-release'ed today by PoPVille, DC restaurant Chix has announced it will be opening on Half Street this summer, in the space between Buffalo Wild Wings and the entrance to the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station, in the block north of Nats Park.
It's the restaurant's third location, and will be serving the same chicken and vegetarian dishes as at the other spots. Chix describes itself as "a green eatery that is committed to providing natural, healthy, delicious, affordable, quick, Latin-flavored meals in a casual environment." The press release says that all of Chix's chicken is "naturally raised, certified antibiotic free, hormone free, halal and locally sourced from Shenandoah Valley Organic Farms in Harrisonburg, Virginia." And their motto is "Eat Responsibly."
It will be open seven days a week, with dine-in, takeout, and delivery service for lunch and dinner.
The neighborhood is becoming quite the poultry destination, with Chix joining B-Dubs next door, Bonchon up the street, and Nando's Peri-Peri a few blocks away.

Wonder what Chix could re-purpose from the neighborhood? Old bricks? Dirt from the hole? Pieces of old shipping containers?

Cannot wait for Chix. Food is good to very good, based on experience with 14th St. store. This likely will do well here, too, because it serves a lunch time crowd looking for something to go that is healthier than BWW and Bon Chon.

(I rarely do such a thing, but I moved these Chix comments from the other thread to here.)

And in other news, as we suspected, the Sakura Matsuri festival is now being billed as happening at 1st and N, so in the parking lots on the south side of N Street (and not on the Spooky Park footprint).

Chix food sux. It's also very similar to Nando's. Wing Stop also sells chicken, and Bonchon. That said, I'm sure they'll do just fine.

Yeah... not sure how well this place will make out, but they certainly have a good location for game days. In my opinion, the best chicken spot in the neighborhood comes down to Nandos and Bonchon. I give the edge to Nandos simply because it's so much healthier (that fried chicken from Bonchon tastes so good, but I just can't eat it on any kind of regular basis), and their outdoor patio is a nicer place to eat (looking forward to winter finally ending, so I can properly enjoy that sangria!).


JD says: (4/6/16 3:12 PM)
In other news, there's news of the bar from the Circa folks going next to Circa that I mentioned in the comments a few days ago (I'll have to write the post another day, I'm getting worn out in the pre-Opening Day runup): link


JD says: (4/6/16 3:13 PM)
Sorry, should have included that it's Open Road.

(And you're welcome for the tip, Rebecca.)
