Ben’s Chili Bowl Eyeing Expansion in Clarendon?

The owners of Ben’s Chili Bowl are considering opening a new location in Clarendon, the Washington City Paper reported today.

Kamal and Nizam Ali are said to be looking at a half-dozen different locations in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, including Clarendon.

Currently, the U Street landmark — famous for its half-smokes and its Bill Cosby connection — only has one other satellite location: in Nationals Park.
