A Colorado-based fast casual eatery has plans to start slinging sandwiches, pizzas and salads in downtown D.C. early next year.
Modern Market will open a new location at 1010 Vermont Ave. NW, a representative for the company told us. If all goes according to plan, the new location would start serving customers in “mid-January” next year, the representative said.
When it opens, the downtown Modern Market will sell a long list of food made with “whole ingredients that come from farms, not factories,” according to the company’s website. The eatery’s menu includes egg scrambles, waffles, sandwiches, salads, brick oven pizzas and “homestyle platters” of protein, starch and veggies.
Modern Market also seeks to serve alcohol at the new restaurant, according to a recent filing with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.
The forthcoming location will be the chain’s first in the District, but not in the surrounding area. A Modern Market opened in Bethesda earlier this year, and additional eateries are slated to open in Rockville and Reston, the company’s representative said.
