More stuff coming to Upshur Street! Celebrity chef Alex McCoy is opening an "old world sandwich shop and market" at 845 Upshur, according to the Washingtonian. The final-name-pending spot will have British style sandwiches, like salt beef (a lot like corned beef), tuna and chicken salad, and other items, all served to-go.
Then McCoy and team decided the Upshur space's kitchen wasn't big enough, so Alfie's is moving to a location to be determined downtown. And Alfie's will change over to Tchoup's Market, a New Orleans po-boy spot going for more of a bar vibe.
And now we know more: Tchoup's opens August 4th while the British sandwich spot is aimed at the next few months.
Sounds good to me!
