rinconcito fire
1326 Park Road, NW

Back in October, Columbia Heights gem, El Rinconcito II suffered a terrible fire. Finally some good news from a reader:

“talking to one of the owners of El Rinconcito on Park Road. They are aiming to reopen the second week of April.

And since they have one of the best outdoor dining areas in Columbia Heights, this is fixing to be very good timing and very good news, indeed.

good silver
new wrap around bar nearly completed at The Good Silver on 11th between Park and Monroe

From a press release:

“The team behind Ivy and Coney (Josh Saltzman, Chris Powers, and Adam Fry) and partner Carrie Dzwil, are excited to announce their newest bar, The Good Silver (@goodsilverdc on twitter), at 3410 11th St. NW in Columbia Heights.


While we still believe hotdogs are a primary food group, The Good Silver will focus on simple seasonal ingredients, pickled veggies, cured meats and a certain banquet beer combo. Think local heirloom tomatoes in August, or strawberries in June, but when Winter arrives a BLT featuring tomato jam or rum punch spiked with a best-of-the-season strawberry shrub will be on the menu. We will also be adding some cutting-edge technology such as credit card machines, bar spoons, and level floors. What a time to be alive! (more…)
