2 Nixons, a traveling ramen pop-up, is coming to DC. The Charleston, SC-based venture is helmed by chef Jeffrey Stoneberger, whose resume includes leading positions at Holy City hotspots such as McCrady’s, Two Boroughs Larder (now closed), and Butcher and Bee. He also cooked with Bryan Voltaggio at Aggio, and the two will collaborate for a series of meals at Range on October 7 and 8.

Stoneberger is known for marrying local Southern products with Japanese and Korean flavors at his pop-ups, such as brown butter and blue crab ramen, which will make an appearance at the DC event. The menu will also include snacks and yakitori skewers prepared over traditional binchōtan charcoal grills.

The pop-up will run on Friday from 4 to 10 pm, and go late-night on Saturday from 8 pm to 2 am. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at 202-803-8020.
