The Owners Of Fast Gourmet To Launch Second Restaurant In Dupont

The Owners Of Fast Gourmet To Launch Second Restaurant In Dupont

Get excited D.C. foodies: The people behind Fast Gourmet are getting ready to launch their second venture.

The restaurant, which will be called “TakEatEasy”, will be located at 1990 M Street in Dupont and should open by the end of March, Fast Gourmet General Manager and Co-owner Manuel Olivera confirmed in an interview.

“The concept is still being worked on,” Olivera said.  “It will have a great quality of cuisine in a very calm and chill atmosphere.  What we are going to try to achieve is produce a great quality of food in a very relaxed environment.”

Olivera said that TakEatEasy’s menu will be “more ambitious” than Fast Gourmet, the gourmet sandwich shop located in a gas station at the corner of 14th and W Streets NW, which has taken the city by storm.
