Update: Due to glitches on opening day, Sprig & Sprout has closed temporarily and plans to reopen on Friday, December 6.
Pho fans, the Hilton Brothers’ new noodle soup spot, Hanoi House, is not your only reason to rejoice. There is also Sprig & Sprout, a Glover Park pho and bánh mì destination that opened its doors officially on Monday, December 3.
According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, Sprig & Sprout is temporarily only accepting cash as it works out some of the kinks with its systems. An upstairs bar is also in the restaurant’s future. For now, content yourself with the warm little dining room, glowy beneath globe-shaped ceiling lights, and a diagram dictating the proper ways to tackle a steaming bowl of Vietnamese soup or a rich baguette sandwich. In addition to pho and bánh mì, the restaurant offers Viet-style egg rolls that customers roll up with lettuce, pickled carrots, and daikon, and cold vermicelli bowls. We will return soon with more details about the exciting Northwest DC development.
Sprig & Sprout. 2317 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-333-2569.
