A fast casual restaurant centered around quinoa bowls and semi-automated ordering is slated to start serving breakfast and lunch downtown in one week.
San Francisco-based chain Eatsa will open its first D.C. location at 1627 K St. NW on Tuesday, Nov. 29, according to a representative for the company.
Borderstan got the scoop on the forthcoming eatery in July.
Ordering works like this: Instead of talking to a cashier and moving down an assembly line Chipotle-style, customers order on tablets at kiosks or on their phones, then retrieve their food from glass door “cubbies,” all without saying a word.
The restaurant’s menu includes quinoa bowls and salads topped with ingredients such as kale, arugula, chickpeas, paneer and avocado.
