“Sprig & Sprout is joining the brunch community! Come in on Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 3pm for our specialized Brunch Menu. We will be offering traditional Vietnamese Classics that are found in the streets and shop houses of Vietnam, as well as Viet American Platters that take familiar brunch plates and add a Vietnamese twist.
“I’m super excited to introduce these menu items because it’s another chance to expand people’s knowledge about the range that Vietnamese food can be. I’m hoping everyone will embrace these dishes with as much vigor as they have our Supper Club. The Viet Classics are what I grew up eating on Sunday afternoons with my parents. 20 years ago we would trek over to Eden Center in Falls Church, VA and we would go to shops that specialized in just these dishes. Now I get a chance to offer them to DC residents and no one has to cross a bridge and fight traffic!”
The Vietnamese Classics include Bo Kho, a phenomenal French rooted beef stew, with lemongrass, ginger, star anise, and cardamom. (Served with a Banh Mi baguette, so you can literally wipe the bowl clean.) Those looking for lighter fare, the Banh Cuon offers steamed rice crepes topped with Vietnamese Cha Lua, and an array of fresh herbs and veggies. For the Viet American Platters, we’ve taken familiar items like Steak & Eggs, Breakfast Burritos, and Scrambles but use Vietnamese flavors to enhance these dishes. And don’t miss out on our Taro & Potato Home fries served with a honey vinegar drizzle.
Brunch will start on October 26th. To celebrate the new menu we are offering a Mimosa, or Bloody Mary to everyone who orders a Bowl, Viet Classic, or Viet American Platter (banh mi is excluded from the offer) compliments of the house through the month of November. There will also be specials on brunch cocktails, as well as select beers.”

Back in July we first learned that Sushiko had closed in Glover Park. At the time there was still hope they could possibly reopen. Sadly a reader updates:
“Walking by Sushiko in glover park on Sunday I noticed a very sad development. On the alley side is a very large Papadopoulos Properties For Lease sign – I guess that is the nail in the coffin and one of DC’s first and great sushi restaurants is done.”
I know it’s a long shot but I hope the eventual new tenants save the mural above.

“SLATE Wine Bar + Bistro – known for its extensive selection of unique wines and their ability to make every meal memorable – is launching its new menu Friday, September 20, 2013. The contemporary American dishes will promote seasonal fall flavors with expanded menu selections.
Im excited our new fall menu provides more variety for diners as we have increased the number of the items on our lunch, dinner, and brunch menus. I am especially pleased we have added more vegetarian and seafood items, says SLATE Manager, Daniel Lledó.
Incorporating diverse flavors, highlights of SLATEs fall menu include the Spicy Eggplant appetizer; Pan Seared Sea Scallops with bacon-corn chowder; Bistro Filet with mushroom-peppercorn sauce, fries, and asparagus; and local Rockfish with tomato, fennel and asparagus. Guests wanting to pair cheese with their wine may be excited by the new Cheese and Charcuterie selections like Canya de Cabra and acorn fed Lomo Embutido.”
“Following last month’s festive celebration of the third anniversary of its flagship brewpub in Falls Church, Mad Fox Brewing Company announced today that it will expand to Washington, DC, with plans to open a 4,590 square foot taproom at 2218 Wisconsin Avenue, NW in Glover Park. Mad Fox Brewing Company Taproom (Mad Fox Taproom), a 127-seat neighborhood establishment, is slated to open by the end of first quarter 2014, depending on the renovations needed and the permitting process.
“Glover Park is a wonderful neighborhood that deserves a great beer bar like the Mad Fox Taproom,” said Mad Fox CEO and Executive Brewer Bill Madden. Mad Fox has been searching for a location in the Nation’s Capital for the past 20 months, scouting out 27 neighborhoods throughout the District. “Glover Park offers an ideal fit for our concept and shares similarities with Falls Church in its demographics and overall environment. And just like in Falls Church, we look forward to becoming an active and positive member of the community, contributing to both the economy and the culinary options of the area.”
The Mad Fox Taproom will showcase its award-winning handcrafted beers with draught and English-style cask service, with up to 24 draught and cask options. Diners can expect a full menu with appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, salads and small plates. (more…)

On July 3rd we learned Sushi Ko had been closed in Glover Park. At that time we did not know if it was temporary or permanent. Signs posted on their door still indicate they hope to reopen:
I walked by on Saturday and the space was still closed. A phone call to their Chevy Chase location revealed they are still hoping to re-open the Glover Park spot. But a reader hears they will close permanently. Stay tuned.
