There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
After delays upon delays, it looks like Maketto is finally happening. The H Street NE food-meets-fashion market from Toki Underground chef Erik Bruner-Yang and men’s clothing brand Durkl will officially open April 10 at 7 a.m.
When plans for the market were first announced in the summer of 2012, the founders initially said they hoped to open by early 2013. As that date got pushed back further, a series of pop-ups have built up anticipation for the project. Bruner-Yang held a Maketto “residency” at what was previously Hanoi House, previewed some of the food at Union Market, and popped up at Baltimore’s Shoo-Fly.
In case you can’t wait until its official debut, Maketto will host a “house warming party” on April 4 at 7 p.m. The evening will feature performances by Chuck Inglish, Avers, M.I.L.F., Bond St. District, and Gavin Holland. Tickets, $25, are available here.
Stay tuned for more details.
