From a press release:
“James Beard award-winning chef, Fabio Trabocchi, opened his third D.C. restaurant, Fiola Mare cucina di pesce, at the Washington Harbour in Georgetown on Friday evening, February 21. Like his flagship restaurant Fiola, Fiola Mare offers world-class hospitality and service complete with a one of a kind view of the Potomac River. The new waterfront seafood restaurant evokes the seaside dining experience found along the coasts of Italy and the Mediterranean.
“Our inspiration comes from the coastal restaurants that dot the entire Italian peninsula, on the Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts. The foundation of Fiola Mare is the highest quality seafood available today – from lobsters, oysters, local and imported fish, sustainable Italian caviar, hand made pastas, Italian wines and Italian inspired cocktails – the sum of it all is simplicity, purity, natural flavors and elegance,” says Trabocchi. “The idea of the restaurant and the waterfront location are inseparable.”
With the Potomac River as the focal point, seating is arranged to offer maximum exposure to the river views, including four private dining rooms, an all-season glass enclosed veranda and select seasonal tables aligning the boardwalk. The open kitchen layout, the Seafood Market Counter display and a mixology station showcase the attention to detail and importance of the guests’ experience. (more…)

“Former site of the good Samaritan Hall (Briggs Hall) at 1514 26th Street. This building was used by the black community until the 1940s as a place of worship and meetinghouse. It is now a private residence.”
“The goal, simply put, was to bring together a disparate group of community members to collaborate on the steps that would enhance the Georgetown experience for our visitors, residents, business owners and the people who work here. After more than 100 hours of meetings that engaged more than 200 members of our professional and residential community, a consensus plan was reached which includes 75 recommendations to address pressing transportation issues, enhance public space, reduce office vacancies and attract more unique shops and restaurant.
The resulting Georgetown 2028 Plan and Action Agenda can be read here”

“We created Hill & Dale for people who are looking for a place to discover, celebrate, and enjoy interesting music.
A big part of our lives revolves around music and the people who create great sounds and songs. For years, we found music in local record stores and relied on recommendations from friends who shared our passion for music. When technology changed the way people find and enjoy music, the personal connections we found in record stores and the excitement that came from opening a new LP became scarce. Hill & Dale is a place to find and enjoy music on records, with artwork, liner notes, and lyrics that you hold in your hands. We also offer beautiful posters and photography that celebrate musicians and live performance.
We’re not attached to one style of music and enjoy many genres, geographies, and traditions. Hill & Dale offers a variety of new and old titles in pop, rock, jazz, folk, country, blues, electronica, and lots of material that’s hard to classify. We sell music that we hope you’ll enjoy, but that’s not the only reason to keep coming back to Hill & Dale. We enjoy talking about music and the musicians who are creating interesting sounds, so you can come here for reviews, links to articles, playlists, videos, and anything else that we may be sharing.”
