Scoop: Food News Round-Up

Keeping you updated on the city's top food news...


• I love good bao, the pillowy little Chinese steamed buns. A new food truck dubbed People's Bao (@PeoplesBao) will bring the Asian specialty to DC's streets. Peter He tells Metrocurean that he hopes to get his truck
rolling around February or early March. The truck will serve
Taiwanese-style open bao — as opposed to the closed style — which will
allow the filling of meats and veggies to be customized on the truck.
Stay tuned for more details.


• Once upon a time, Metrocurean slung beers at the Brickskeller (my first job in DC).The legendary beer bar has been sold and the new owners are looking for a new name, according to WTOP. They say they don't plan to change much else.


• Chef Gillian Clark plans to open the Kitchen on K a few blocks from Union Station. Tim Carman reports from his new gig over at the Washington Post.


• Also from Carman, banh mi truck Rebel Heroes has ceased operations and the owners sold the truck to the new Big Cheese.


• H Street NE's latest, Smith Commons,
has set a Dec. 21 opening date. Belgian chef Frederik De Pue is
planning an internationally inspired menu offering such dishes as penne
carbonara, fish and chips, and wood-grilled tiger prawns.
