Dupont Circle residents salivating over anticipated new eatery The Chickery might have to wait a little longer for their chicken fix.
Canadian chicken franchise The Chickery told Borderstan today it aimed to open its location at 1300 Connecticut Avenue NW in October.
The Chickery is a fast casual roasted chicken restaurant headquartered in Toronto. The company has no U.S. locations open for business, but it says its Dupont Circle location will serve as a starting point for additional U.S. expansion.
As noted in the Washington Post, the space’s previous tenant was Black & Orange, a burger restaurant that closed after a neighboring law firm sued it for wafting and irritating cooking odors.
