Back in October 2013 we learned we’d have to find a new spot to purchase our travelers checks since the American Express store closed. We also noted it was a pretty prime location. The steakhouse explosion of ’14 continues with word of Claudia’s Steakhouse taking over this space. A liquor license placard posted out front says:
“New full service upper tier restaurant serving Latin infusion cuisine in a steakhouse environment. Entertainment to include live band performances and dancing during evening hours. Seating is for 300 patrons. Sidewalk café seating 45 patrons.”
It’s located on 15th Street between the Cosi and the new G Street Food. Updates as construction progresses.
“One of the large Mr. Stripey heirloom tomatoes from my Capitol Hill garden.”
If you have a great haul, beautiful tomato or something like that, send an email and a couple photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail with your neighborhood and garden haul in the subject line and I’ll pick a few winners a week (free PoPville t-shirt or tote bag.)
Thanks to all who’ve sent emails about this pop up on Kenyon Street in Columbia Heights. MW sends the photo above and writes:
“An interesting example of a pop-up that seems to be extremely well done, 1300 block of Kenyon Street NW. Note adaptive reuse of original turret. Very thoughtful, and respectful of the neighborhood fabric.”
Here’s a couple of closer up photos I took over the weekend:
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
