“Nicholas Stefanelli recently left Bibiana to open a place of his own at 1344 Fourth St. NE, in conjunction with Edens Realty Inc., the developers of the popular Union Market. The first free-standing restaurant outside the market will be called Masseria, a reference to the charming country houses, many on working farms, throughout Puglia.”
Updates when they get closer to opening, but lots of build out needs to finish first:
“Dupont Circle Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC2B)
Report of the West Dupont Liquor License Moratorium Committee
Published for Public Comment on April 17, 2015
The Dupont Circle ANC will address the west dupont liquor license moratorium at its special meeting on Monday, April 27th at 7:00pm at the Johns Hopkins University building at 1717 Massachusetts Ave NW, Room 500. We encourage public participation at that meeting or to send comments to ANC Commissioners via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The working group encourages ANC 2B to recommend that the ABC Board not renew the West Dupont Circle Liquor License Moratorium. Instead the ANC should adopt a standing policy to protest new liquor license applications in the former moratorium zone until a settlement agreement can be reached with the application that will alleviate any possible concerns over peace, order, quiet and parking.

“The Sixth Annual Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival is less than a week away. This year’s festival features an amazing array of Bluegrass, Folk and Americana talent with co-headliners Cabinet and Larry Keel Experience and more.
The Festival will include eight hours of performances on six stages by local bluegrass, folk and americana artists, games and outdoor beverages, DC’s favorite food trucks, bike parking, free kayaking, sponsor activations, local vendors, giveaways and a number of activities for children of all ages including a family area with music, arts, & crafts.
“Over the past six years, the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival has grown from a small concert with a few hundred neighbors into one of the largest bluegrass festivals in the region. This event brings people to Kingman and Heritage Islands on the Anacostia River and provides them an opportunity to see the natural beauty that exists right here in our city. Enjoying a day of great music on the island is a fun and unique experience. I’m proud to support an event that draws people of all ages to outstanding performances of local music and provides them an opportunity to learn about the Anacostia River and the wildlife that it supports.” Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen
