Miss Shirley's Cafe is currently looking for a new location in D.C., according to a press release. The popular restaurant, which serves breakfast and lunch, already has locations in Roland Park, the Inner Harbor, and Annapolis plus its roving food truck.
Expansion in that area makes sense, said owner Eddie Dopkin in the announcement, since a number of Washington visitors come to the local restaurants. "We'd like to be a part of the D.C. dining scene because we feel that our restaurant, food, and atmosphere is a good fit for the community," he said.
Miss Shirley's opened in 2006 in the Roland Park space that is now S'ghetti Eddie's, also owned by Eddie, and quickly expanded into a larger space across the street. The growing restaurant group is known for its Southern-influenced menu.
I have no confirmation, but I've heard the next Miss Shirley's may be in Bethesda. I'll keep you posted.
