This past summer we let you know that New York based Mexican restaurant Mexicue, which has a nearby location at 1720 14th St NW in DC, would be coming to 4733 Elm St., the former site of Gusto Farm to Street.
The restaurant has its Montgomery County ABS hearing for a beer, wine, and liquor license set for October 7th at 1:30pm.
We spoke with an employee from the DC location who told us the restaurant hopes to open in “a couple months.”
Their menu features tacos, bowls, shareable platters, margaritas and weekend brunch.
From their Facebook page:
“It all started with a passion for real, made-from-scratch cooking in a food truck that traversed Manhattan and Brooklyn, embracing the vibrant culture of the city. Today, Mexicue has evolved into a restaurant — and lively bar scene — that does things a little differently than the other guys. A little more boldly, and with a lot more flavor and fun.
We smoke, braise, char, pickle, juice, mash, grind and create — in a way that is inspired by the Mexican tradition, all with a twist of the American South. Mexicue is the ultimate place to unwind and dine — or order a round of tequila to take the night to the next level.”
