It's Official, We're Getting a Ben's Chili Bowl
It's not news that the family behind Ben's Chili Bowl purchased 1001 H Street (formerly George's Place). After the family purchased the property, they were mum on its exact future, saying they wanted to do some research before deciding whether it would become a chili bowl, or something entirely different. Now the cat is out of the bag. It became very clear at a public meeting last night that the first floor will become a Ben's Chili Bowl.
Margaret Holwill, who live tweeted portions of the meeting, further reports that the upstairs will feature and open kitchen, and a bar (alcohol served upstairs only). But apparently, the grub upstairs will not be what you can get at Ben's Next Door.
