Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) is launching two Facebook-related drawings for free food and drink.

Starting this week, the Vietnamese restaurant will reimburse the lunch order of one customer every Tuesday between 11 am and 4 pm. On Tuesday mornings, Sprig & Sprout’s owners will post a random number on the restaurant’s Facebook page. When a customer’s order number matches that random number, the customer’s order (up to $20 worth) will be reimbursed. See the restaurant’s website for rules.

Along with that weekly lunch lottery, the restaurant is holding a monthly raffle for a gift certificate—and the more people enter, the bigger that certificate will be. To enter, post a photo of yourself eating at Sprig & Sprout on their Facebook page according to the contest rules.

Sprig & Sprout already hosts very popular tasting dinners that tend to sell out well in advance. The new contests are meant to engage customers in a more spontaneous way, says co-owner Jennifer Hoang. “We decided we wanted to be more interactive with our customers, plus have a little more fun on Facebook,” Hoang stated in a press release. “It makes eating here a bit more fun, and possibly rewarding.”

The  monthly supper club at Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) will be 100% vegan this month, according to a press release. “We worked with the female monks of Bien An Tu Temple to develop a taste bud tantalizing and guilt-free meal!” the release states. “Join us upstairs, as owner Jen [Hoang] walks you through 7 courses of what Buddhists have been eating for centuries.

2319WisconsinFrontView

From the May 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Last month we reported that the Tennis Zone building (2319
Wisconsin Ave.) was seeking a retail tenant. But that doesn’t mean the
tennis store is leaving, says Remy Esquenet, who bought the property
in January for $1.2 million. (If Esquenet’s name sounds familiar, it
might be because he also owns 2317 Wisconsin Ave., the home of Sprig
& Sprout.) Esquenet hopes to expand the building to accommodate a
second tenant. Tennis Zone “may stay where they are,” Esquenet tells
us. “They may move up to the second floor.”

Esquenet provided architectural sketches of front and side views for a potential expansion.

From the April 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

On February 20, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board cancelled the liquor license for Margarita’s Restaurant (formerly at 2317 Wisconsin, the current home of Sprig & Sprout). The licensee, Maria Villalta, closed Margarita’s several years ago. Lately, she has tried unsuccessfully to find a new location for her restaurant or a buyer for her license.

Under Glover Park’s liquor license moratorium, up to 14 restaurants in the neighborhood are allowed to have full-service restaurant (CR) licenses. At press time, the former Margarita’s license was one of two Glover Park CR licenses that were unused and unapplied-for, according to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesman.

The closing of Mayfair & Pine (2218 Wisconsin Ave.) and Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub (2400 Wisconsin Ave.) has left two more Glover Park CR licenses idle, though the Kavanagh’s license will soon be put to use at Arcuri, a trattoria slated to open in late April. The liquor license for JP’s Night Club (2412 Wisconsin Ave.), expected to reopen in May, is a nightclub (CN) license.

From the December/January 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The owner of the liquor license for Margarita’s Restaurant is actively seeking a buyer, according to a status report she submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on November 26. The owner, Maria Villalta, has approached Capital Restaurant Concepts—owners of J. Paul’s (3218 M St.) and Paolo’s Ristorante (1303 Wisconsin Ave.)—as well as the owners of Angelico la Pizzeria (2313 Wisconsin Ave.) about potentially buying the license, the report stated. By December 31, Villalta must submit proof of a firm deal to either transfer the license to a new owner or use it to open a new restaurant herself. If she does not, the ABC Board will cancel the license, according to an October 24 board order. Margarita’s Restaurant was formerly located at 2317 Wisconsin Ave., the current home of Sprig & Sprout.

Villalta’s license is one of two full-service (CR) licenses going unused under Glover Park’s license moratorium. The other license, one of two added when the moratorium was renewed last spring, has never been used and had not been applied for at press time, according to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesman.
