Not What We Expected When We Heard Espita Had a Ghost Kitchen

A Ghost Kitchen at Espita had us like…. whaaaat?! But don’t worry, it’s not scary, it’s scrumptious.

Here’s the deal: Espita’s former chef Rob Aikens is returning to their Shaw kitchen to launch a new concept: Ghostburger. But while we love a good burger, Ghostburger’s offerings go way beyond.

The stuff on Ghostburger’s menu takes a supernatural twist on the Espita team’s typical cuisine, combining flavors from Philly, Mexico, and France. And like any good phantasm, it’s fleeting (meaning: we have no idea how long it will be available at Espita before it vanishes to somewhere… other.)

So get ready to haunt this pop-up for cheesesteaks, boozy milkshakes, and Ghostburger’s take on some classic sides — we promise they’re paranormal (meaning: unlike anything else offered in DC).

The apparition, aka pop-up, will run Monday to Thursday, 4:00 PM to 9:30 PM; Friday, 4:00 PM to 10:30 PM; Saturday, 11:00 AM to 10:30 PM; Sunday, 11:00 AM to 9:30 PM. Menu is available for takeout and delivery on Caviar, DoorDash, and UberEats (with plans in the works for in-restaurant dining in the future).
