Chef Kevin Tien Spotted Painting over Pom Pom in Petworth!!
828 Upshur Street, NW
The former Himitsu / Pom Pom room at 828 Upshur St NW was painted black yesterday and the “For Lease” sign has disappeared! I haven’t seen / heard anything about what’s going on in this room. I should have stopped and asked, but didn’t. “
Another reader reports: “Kevin Tien was out last night to repaint the Himitsu ad!
He is loved in Petworth. Any scuttlebutt? “
Another reader reports: “We were walking down Upshur in Petworth and noticed that someone was painting the exterior of the room that PomPom had cleared that summer. We asked the painter if he knew what it was going to be and he said all he knew was that it was going to be a restaurant and they tried to open in 60 days (pretty ambitious!). Excited to see what becomes of this and would love to hear if anyone knows anything else! “
