There’s been a boom in restaurants that aren’t quite sit-down, but are more upscale than typical fast food joints. But you wouldn’t know that from how the city zones restaurants. Up until recently, strict city regulations meant to limit fast food establishments have hampered the so-called fast-casual revolution, making it tougher for local eateries like Cava Grill and &pizza to open new locations. In response, the city’s zoning authorities have changed the regulations. We explore these changes and what it means for dining in D.C.
