At some point in time we have all visited Ben's Chili Bowl craving their chili dogs or milkshakes. The local landmark restaurant has celebrated its 50th anniversary and the sons of the owners have decided to expand on it. Nizam and Kamal Ali have been working on a restaurant/bar for the past two years. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on the new spot which is right next door to Ben's Chili Bowl. Next Door the name that gives "props" to the bowl will feature a 53 foot bar and nine flat screen TV's!! The new establishment will definitely bring a new atmosphere to the U street community. The menu, the look, and the concept will be completely different from what we are used to seeing when walking into Ben's Chili Bowl. At Next Door expect to see a menu that features salads and sophisticated entree's along with a bar that will feature real cocktails. Next Door will open sometime this month on 1211 U street NW!
