we were in District 2 and I think it started in the kitchen”
From AlertDC just before 4pm:
“UPDATE: FEMS reports the fire in the 3200 block Wisconsin Ave NW has been put out. The street closures remain in effect. DOH Food Inspector was requested.”
Ed. Note: I hear District 2 may be out of commission until mid-March – stay tuned for a reopening date.

“The Bozzuto Group, a Greenbelt, MD-based real estate services company, announced today that it has signed seven additional tenants for Cathedral Commons, a brand new mixed-use development on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, D.C.
The new retailers include Grilled Oyster Company, [solidcore], Wylie Wagg, Le Village Marche, Core 72, Pure Barre and Parks Fabricare.
Seafood and steak restaurant Grilled Oyster Company will open a 4,169 square foot space fronting the Newark Street plaza in Spring 2015. [solidcore], a 2,100 square foot fitness facility offering Pilates-inspired total body workouts in a class or private setting, is now open for business.
In March 2015, Wylie Wagg will open its 2,817 square foot, family-run specialty pet supplies and food store. Le Village Marche, a 1,515 square foot boutique-style store offering home furnishings, accessories, and a variety of specialty gifts inspired by French style, will open its second location in Spring 2015. Core 72, a women’s active wear and lifestyle brand retailer, will open a 952 square foot store in Spring 2015, its second location.
In Spring 2015, Pure Barre, a specialty fitness studio focused on core strength, will open a 1,400 square foot space. Parks Fabricare, a dry cleaning service and an original tenant of the prior development, will re-open a 1,656 square foot storefront in Spring 2015.
“We’re thrilled to add retail establishments to Cathedral Commons that will bring convenient services, wellness offerings and shopping destinations to residents and neighbors alike,” said Toby Bozzuto, president, The Bozzuto Group. “These retailers will round out the community’s terrific line up of local and national health, retail, and dining options.”
In May 2014, Bozzuto announced seven Cathedral Common tenants: Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar, Raku, iDoc Optical, Wells Fargo, SunTrust Bank, Starbucks and a recently-opened CVS Pharmacy. The retail offerings are anchored by a new, 56,000 square foot state of the art Giant Food that opened earlier this month. (more…)
First I have to say – I love that they kept the old 1950s neon sign – awesome! Other memorable element of the store is that it has a ton of self check out stations – good beer and wine selection, they’ll steam lobsters for you, there’s a full service bank, a big starbucks cafe with awesome old map mural – but for me – it’s all about the sign.
Also if you live nearby and happen to see the ribbon cutting at 6pm tonight – they’ll let you in to shop afterwards. Regular store hours are 6am – midnight.
Have a look inside the new 58,000 square foot store after the jump. (more…)
