Tastemakers Opens Today With Captain Cookie Ice Cream And Cookie Dough Bar

Many neighbors will be happy to know that Brookland’s new food hall/incubator Tastemakers opens today. Their first food stand, Captain Cookie, will offer up made-to-order ice cream sandwiches and an “edible cookie dough bar” with flavors like chocolate chip, salted caramel, birthday cake, gingerbread spice, and double chocolate buzz. According to the tweet below, there will be a ribbon cutting today at 11:00 am.

We also learned a few more details about the other vendors eventually coming to Tastemakers from this article in Eater DC:

The warehouse will also include a Benjamin Franklin-inspired bar and six other vendors: Ball or Nothing, DC Vegan, Alchemist Coffee, DC Steakholders, and DC Ballers, as well as a soon-to-be announced breakfast stall. Construction is under way, with rolling openings starting in early 2018.

The new Captain Cookie counter is projected to operate from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Tastemakers occupies an 8,000 square foot building at the corner of 10th and Franklin.

Food Incubator, Tastemakers, Is Coming To Brookland

Future Site of Tastemakers – at the corner of 10th and Franklin NE

We recently learned that Brookland will be getting a food incubator called Tastemakers from the owners of popular food truck Captain Cookie and the Milkman.  Tastemakers will occupy an 8,000 square foot building at the corner of 10th and Franklin. It will have a kitchen that can host 25 and 40 members as well as retail space. According to this story in the Washington Business Journal:

Tastemakers will have a large commercial kitchen with cold and dry storage, as well as space for as many as eight vendor kiosks where members can sell their wares. There will also be a shared office space with a conference room and a demonstration kitchen.

The article also mentions the potential for food truck members given the building’s three garage bays and onsite parking. Coincidentally, Tastemakers  joins Mess Hall – another food incubator, which is just over the Franklin Street bridge in Edgewood. Right Proper Brewing and the Dew Drop Inn are also nearby – maybe we could see some interesting joint efforts.  Tastemakers is slated to open in late summer or early fall and will be located at 2800 10th Street NE.
