The area's first Southern comfort food drive-through kitchenette will open in Northeast DC Saturday. Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. (2301 Bladensburg Road NE) from Baltimore native Ayeshah Abuelhiga, started as a community-funded pop-up shop in Union Market in 2014 and has been drawing in hungry crowds ever since. Now it's expanding into its own space. Restaurant-goers will be able to indulge in executive chef Jason Gehring's famous biscuits, as well as a menu full of fried chicken, breakfast sandwiches and milkshakes. The restaurant has a cool retro vibe and is located on an old drag lot.
