The Little Beet is looking to open soon in Dupont. This New York City based "quick-serve" style restaurant will replace Pei Wei at 1212 18th Street NW. Pei Wei barely lasted two years on this busy, but competitive block.
The Little Beet claims to be 100% gluten-free, GMO free, and generally healthy. The familiar "pick all your own ingredients to build a meal" format is similar to Chop't, Chipotle, &pizza, Cava, and Shophouse; all of which are very popular in DC right now. Cooler news is that The Little Beet looks veg and vegan friendly with a simple, but satisfying looking menu. No word yet on an opening date.
