Next up for EatsPlace: seasonal eats from an underground chef

Chef Mackenzie Kitburi

"Pop-uppery" EatsPlace has announced its next chef in residence, who moves in and begins serving dinner March 12.

Mackenzie Kitburi will run Capital Taste Presents: Delilah at EatsPlace Thursdays through Sundays at the revolving restaurant incubator, which opened in October. "Capital Taste" is the name of Kitburi's pop-up company, where he cooks one-off dinners like a field-to-plate dinner at East Lynn Farm in Loudon County or a Thai-inspired series. "Delilah" is the name of Kitburi's daughter.

"This is my first multi-day event," Kitburi, who opened Capital Taste last year after cooking around the city at places like Fiola, Range, and Marcel's. "I think it'll be a good test for me."

The first week's menu is printed below, but Kitburi says he plans on changing the menu each week of the pop-up (which runs through April 4, according to EatsPlace). "I just enjoy bringing the freshest" food to people, he says. Kitburi's ultimate goal? Same as many chefs trying out new concepts in pop-up spots 'round the city: "At the end of the day...to have my own place, that's really the goal," Kitburi says.

EatsPlace is leaving Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday free for a different pop-up, still to be announced. It is located at 3607 Georgia Ave NW, in a part of Park View that is often called Petworth for its proximity to the Petworth metro station.
