New pop-up restaurant at Eatsplace on Georgia Ave: seafood and spring veggie spot Delilah

Eatsplace, the "pop-uppery" or restaurant incubator located at 3607 Georgia Ave NW, has announced a new restaurant: Capital Taste Presents: Delilah, which uses spring vegetables, ingredients from local farmers, seafood and meat. Sounds like a tasty, fresh and healthy place, and there are lots of vegetarian or vegan options.

Previously the spot has hosted a Southern restaurant, an Asian dumpling house, a biscuit restaurant and more.

Here's more from them, and here's their website.

EatsPlace, the food incubator and pop-uppery, announces its next chef in resident. Capital Taste Presents: Delilah. Delilah will make abundant use of early spring vegetables, seafood and meat to highlight the freshness of the season, such as butternut ravioli, Nantucket Bay scallops, green papaya and grilled skirt steak. Dessert will include peanut butter and chocolate napoleons and caramel apple fritters. 

Chef Mackenzie Kitburi is the owner and executive chef of Capital Taste. The much-buzzed about young chef has been busy on the underground dining scene. Past events from Capital Taste include a field to plate dinner at East Lynn Farm, a Thai inspired dinner series dedicated to Kitburi’s late aunt and numerous other underground dinners. Kitburi seeks out personal relationships with local farmers and purveyors is proud of using local and sustainable ingredients.
