No Soup For You virtual pop-up debuts at Fainting Goat

This winter, comforting soups will be prepared by the dark kitchen at Fainting Goat

A new ghost-kitchen pop-up has come to Washington, DC, brought by the owners of The Fainting Goat, called No Soup For You. The virtual restaurant will serve up soul-warming soups, hearty stews and indulgent dips, accompanied by breads, biscuits and sandwiches to dip in the broth extravaganza.

The takeout only venture is part of the Blagden Hospitality Group family of restaurants, which include Tiger Fork, Calico, Hei Hei Tiger, and Hi-Lawn. No Soup For You will offer in-house prepared soups from $9 to $14. Culinary inspiration comes from Nathan Beauchamp, partner and culinary director, and Chef Sam George.
