Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above from the Chevy Chase Pavilion in Friendship Heights (5335 Wisconsin Avenue, NW.) Washingtonian reports:
The original Frederick location of the sandwich shop boasts a menu that’s both moderately priced and family-friendly—think a $4.50 grilled cheese sandwich and fruit cups alongside more grown-up options like a wedge salad with barbecue chicharrones and a slow-cooked pork shoulder sandwich with pickled cabbage and cilantro.
Earlier in the week Eater DC had posted a tip that Tynan Coffee’s Friendship Heights location had closed at 5310 Western Ave. NW (Wisconsin and Western Ave, NW.) A good source tells me that the space will likely become a Le Pain Quotidien. Stay tuned.
CIVIL CIGAR LOUNGE — brought to you by John Anderson and Matt Krimm of W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist — is a premium cigar lounge and small plate eatery concept located in the Chevy Chase Pavilion, 5335 Wisconsin Avenue NW in Washington, DC. A carefully curated selection of premium cigars from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic will be paired with premium and small batch spirits, wines, beers and specialty cocktails.
The small plates menu will be developed exclusively by Chef Bryan Voltaggio’s RANGE, located adjacent to CIVIL in the Chevy Chase Pavilion.
CIVIL features a 500 square foot retail section and 5,000 square foot lounge. Our state of the art air handling system replaces 100% of the air in the facility every two minutes. In addition, 125 humidified cigar lockers are available for lease.

When I was checking out RANGE opening in 5335 Wisconsin Avenue, NW I also saw a sign for a new Tex-Mex restaurant near the Friendship Heights metro. Mic Cocina’s website says:
“Welcome to Mi Cocina where everything we offer is hand-crafted and made fresh daily using authentic Mexican cooking techniques and the finest ingredients available. From our famous, homemade salsa to our mouthwatering, hand-dipped enchiladas, you can taste the freshness and quality in every bite. Relax in our comfortable stylish surroundings with one of our legendary Mambo Taxis® served by our family of warm, friendly and professional staff. It’s our honor to serve you!”
You can see their menu here. They have a lot of locations in Texas – has anyone ever eaten at one?
Lots of folks have been eagerly anticipating the new restaurant, RANGE, from chef Bryan Voltaggio opening up in the Chevy Chase Pavilion by the Friendship Heights metro. I was able to attend a media preview last night and felt like I was launched into the future:
From a press release:
RANGE encompasses 14,000 square feet where the open kitchen design allows the 300 seats a view and ample interaction with the team of chefs. The kitchen stations include charcuterie, bakery, raw bar, rotisserie, wood fired hearth, dessert and candy, and coffee bar. Voltaggio’s approach promotes the use of whole animals such as Border Springs Farm lambs and Roseda Black Angus Farm steers that are butchered on-site and featured in a collection of offerings that include alternative cuts like shoulders, legs, and offal. Local game, fowl and the freshest seafood straight from the Chesapeake also grace the menu to meet all appetites. One menu is presented throughout the restaurant and highlights seasonal ingredients sourced from the Mid-Atlantic region prepared through classic and progressive techniques.
Back in June we learned DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) was coming to Friendship Heights in the former Borders bookstore space. They’re now open at 5333 Wisconsin Ave, NW. The Columbia Heights DSW opened at 14th and Irving back in early October.

We have an advanced screening of a movie, Premium Rush, this Thursday, August 23 at 7:00 p.m. at AMC Mazza in Friendship Heights. If people would like to see the movie and ride their bikes to the theatre, they can receive a FREE, reserved seat to the screening that evening. However, they must be willing to check in with a screening representative by 6:30 p.m. and have their photo taken with their bike. Tickets are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it is best to arrive early to ensure seating.
