Reasonable or not?

For those who find it reasonable or just want a crepe for lunch at the regular price – you can see Crepeaway’s menu here.

UPDATE from Crepeaway:

“Hello everyone- my name is saad. I am the owner of crepeaway restaurant.

I want to make it clear that crepeaway does NOT charge double during late night hours.

What the poorly written sign is trying to say is that we close at 4am on Friday and Saturday. Sometimes people walk in at 415am. They want service. We tell these customers that if they want us to stay later, then we have to charge THEM double. Let me also point out that the funds that come from these patrons go straight into the tip jar…

I’m sorry this was misunderstood.

Kind regards sj 2024134822”

14th and K Street, NW

EaterDC reports the “restaurant’s last day of business will be New Year’s Eve”:

“It’s been a long road for D.C. Coast, which opened back in June of 1998. At the time, K Street was a very different place. “At nine o’clock, it would be prostitutes everywhere; they just came out of the woodwork,” he said. He remembers a time when partner Gus DeMillo chased a group of working ladies down the street, brandishing a giant pepper mill.”

They also note the return of TenPenh (the old space is now the recently opened Tadich Grill) to the hinterland:

“The company will bring back its pan-Asian restaurant, which closed in 2011, in a new format, this time in Tysons Corner.”



1350 I Street, NW

Ed. Note: This is the spot from the owners of City Tap House coming to former Tuscana West space across from Franklin Square park.

From a press release:

“Pennsylvania 6 DC, a new upscale restaurant featuring contemporary American cuisine, announces plans to open on November 20 in Franklin Square. An extension of the Pennsylvania 6 brand, the restaurant pays homage to Hotel Pennsylvania, the first social scene in Manhattan where entertainers and political players would come together over refined culinary dishes and hand-crafted cocktails. In helping to sustain the historical integrity of the original, Pennsylvania 6 DC’s food and beverage program will be led by Sommelier and James Beard Award- winner Mark Slater, Culinary Director Brian Cooke and Executive Chef Marc Plessis. Owned by Chris Coco and designed by Washington, DC-based interior designer Maggie O’Neill from Swatchroom, Pennsylvania 6 DC is destined to be the next power spot to hit the District.
