Current Status: James Wozniuk is the chef behind Makan that has filled a void in D.C. dining by bringing back Malaysian cuisine. The restaurant had the great misfortune of opening in March 2020. It held on and is now doing sit-down with outdoor seating plus take-out and delivery. The food has justifiably won praise. If pineapple curry is on the menu, don’t skip it. Without the assistance of urban planning, this stretch of 11th Street is developing into a sensational spot for various Asian cuisines including Bad Saint and Queen’s English. Try one, try all.
