  • District Space DC 3522 12th Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20017 United States (map)

District Space is excited to welcome back Chef Christian Irabién after his successful tostada pop-up earlier this year. From August 8th through September 30th, Irabién will host the third major pop up event for his modern, upscale Mexican concept, Amparo Fondita.

The menu will feature updated takes on traditional Mexican flavors, ingredients and dishes, inspired by Irabién’s family’s cooking traditions from Chihuahua, Distrito Federal (CDMX) and the coastal states of Veracruz and Yucatán.

Menu highlights include fish skin chicharrones, salt-cured nopal salad, farro esquites and corn truffle ravioli in poblano sauce. Food will be complemented by a thoughtfully curated bar program that features premium mezcales and tequilas.

Guests will be able to enjoy flights of mezcal, tequila and sotol, allowing them to explore the regionality and terroir of craft Mexican spirits.

Dinner: Wednesday/Thursday, 5:30-10pm, Friday/Saturday, 5:30-11pm.
