Erik Bruner-Yang, of Maketto (1351 H St. NE), will open his latest venture tomorrow at 1358 H St. NE. The new pop-up restaurant will be called Yangs, and it will serve hot pot and tacos. If that seems like an odd combination, keep in mind that Bruner-Yang partnered with Troy Hickman for the Tacos Impala pop-up way back in 2010.
You'll be able to select either a chicken or vegetable based broth for your hot pot, pick your sauce, add meat/seafood/vegetables, and finish it off with a selection of tofu, different noodles, or even dumplings. In the mood for tacos instead? Get them in grilled steak, braised pork, chorizo, or grilled chicken. Among the beverage options you will find beer, wine, tea, and margaritas.
James Wozniuk, of Maketto, will man the kitchen as chef. Colin Sugalski, also of Maketto, has been named as beverage director. The concept is by Foreign National (Bruner-Yang's restaurant/design company).
Yangs will be open Tuesday though Saturday from 5pm to close.
