Burger, Tap & Shake (BTS) Expands to Tenleytown

Guess who's coming to (serve) dinner in Tenleytown? Foggy Bottom favorite Burger Tap & Shake is opening a second location at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue & Albemarle Street, NW. BTS will replace recently departed noodles/tapas restaurant Eurasian HotPot. Once open, it will compete with nearby Z-Burger for the unofficial title of Tenleytown's top burger joint. According to the ABC license notice on the front door, it will have a sidewalk cafe with seating for 25, and a total occupancy of 99. More info, as it becomes available.

About Burger Tap & Shake:
Foggy Bottom has never been so cool! Neatly wrapping the corner from Washington Circle to 23rd Street is the hip new Burger, Tap & Shake. It shares kitchen and keg space with District Commons, the Passion Food Hospitality restaurant now anchoring the Circle, but takes the casual vibe to whole new realm.

Throughout the day, we grind on premise a custom blend of 3-day aged, naturally raised Local Harvest beef chuck and brisket. Char-griddled and served on a buttered, toasted, house made bun. By focusing on premium sourcing and in-house production - from pickles to ice cream - we are able to serve a great burger at a great price.

BTS is a counter service, seat-yourself burger joint with an atmosphere of no-nonsense industrial chic: light cement floors, an exposed black ductwork ceiling, and a cement bar faced with rough-hewn reclaimed wood. The walls of the open stainless steel grill-kitchen are lined with work-a-day subway tile. When your burger is ready, it is presented on a quarter-size metal sheet pan topped with a sheet of paper - no fuss, no muss, no plate!
