Las Gemelas is a passion project from Destination Unknown Restaurants, the DC based company behind the beloved Oaxacan hotspot, Espita, and its popular Philly inspired ghost kitchen, Ghostburger. Las Gemelas (“the twin girls” in Spanish) is a two restaurant concept located within “La Cosecha” in the heart of the Union Market District.
Taqueria Las Gemelas is a fast fancy temple of masa complete with tacos, quesadillas, and tlayudas built upon fresh heirloom corn tortillas made by Yesenia Neri Diaz and her team. We hope you stop by to sip a casual margarita (or two) on our sunny sidewalk café. If you can’t stay, be sure to grab some of our pantry staples, like moles, salsas, or tortillas to cook with at home.
If you are looking for a getaway hidden in an urban environment, look no further than Las Gemelas Cocina Mexicana. Enjoy sophisticated coastal fare by Chefs Robert Aikens & Ben Tenner and keep that vacation feeling going with a glass of Mexican wine or a cocktail by James Simpson & Jose Cox. We encourage you to stay awhile and enjoy a table overlooking the heart of the market.
