“Around Dupont Circle today. Azaleas, hydrangeas, & some other kind of bushes. First I thought: new homes for the rats. Then I saw they were putting wire mesh first & then making holes in the mesh to put the plants through before covering the mesh with some soil. Will this meshwork keep the rats from burrowing? Won’t the rats just dig under at the edges?”

Back in January I first shared word that the Donburi folks were moving into the former Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine space. Anyone remember Singapore Bistro? That news is now confirmed based on a liquor license application for Donburi:

“A fast casual restaurant serving Japanese cuisine. Seating capacity of 57 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 92. No entertainment, performances or dancing.”

Donburi’s first location is at 2438 18th Street, NW in Adams Morgan.  Sophie’s closed back in March of last year. You can see Donburi’s menu here.  Updates as they get closer to opening.

From a press release:

“St. Yves, a newly opened clubhouse, presents an intimate setting steeped in sophisticated glamour. Owned by David Chung and Ki Jun Sung—the team behind some of DC’s most defining nightlife venues of the last two decades including Capitale, Chinese Disco, Mason Inn, George, K Street Lounge, and Daedalus—St. Yves is an instant, Instagramable stunner.

The 150-seat, two-story, historical landmark located at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Jefferson Street, assumes a hybrid occupation of daytime corporate happy hours and special events with evenings and weekends taking on the energy of a late night hot spot. “We have learned so much about the nightlife culture of the DC metro area and have pivoted in a unique way. We present an intimate, elevated social setting that is not a waitlist-restaurant or crowded, delirious bar. It’s providing a place where everyone wants to be,” says co-owner, Ki Jun Sung. (more…)
