Back in July we posted that Tastemakers, a food incubator from the owners of popular food truck Captain Cookie and the Milkman applied for a liquor license and will open in early fall. Recently we came across their new website, which has a lot of pictures of the progress they are making, we thought readers might want to check it out. From the website:
Our vision is to build what food startups like ours need: a well-run commercial kitchen in which members can work without breaking the bank. The back of the house will be bustling with the rising stars who drive the DC culinary scene.
The front of the house features a gourmet food hall and market highlighting our city’s great small and mid-sized food startups. We’re adding a bar emphasizing craft cocktails and local brews and building a neighborhood gathering space where taste testers, the area food lovers, can interact with our taste makers.
We want this to be a place for engagement and education for anyone interested in learning culinary skills or trying out a hot new concept. Early next year we will begin offering kitchen tours, cooking classes and chef’s table events for the public.
We hope you’ll take a place at our table, in the vibrant Brookland neighborhood.
Tastemakers will occupy an 8,000 square foot building at the corner of 10th and Franklin.
