A Note to the Community

It is with some sadness and so much gratitude that we announce that Mélange will be closing its Mount Vernon Triangle location this week. We anticipate moving to a different location in the near future. Stay tuned for an announcement as soon as details are finalized.

In September 2020, Mélange first opened its doors in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood as part of the EDENS Catalyst program. With the community's unwavering support and an extremely hard-working team, Mélange not only survived but thrived during the pandemic. Because of that overwhelming support up until this day, what was originally intended to be a one-year lease turned into a couple. As the program's first chef participant, I am exceptionally grateful to EDENS for the opportunity to continue to grow my culinary expertise at CityVista.

Although we close our doors for now, we look forward to welcoming you to our new home soon. Saturday, April 22, will be Mélange's last day open at City Vista. We hope you can stop by to grab some of your favorites and so we can say 'thank you' in person. Until we open our new location, please visit Mélange's sister restaurant, Doro Soul Food to get my take on soul food infused with Ethiopian spices and flavors.

With tons of gratitude,
Chef Elias Taddesse and the entire Melange family
