This rental is located at 2800 Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest. The listing says:

Chef’s kitchen with SS appliances, cherry cabinets and tile backsplash! Gleaming hardwood floors and freshly painted! Updated bath!”
I totally forgot about this when I spotted the architectural plans for Mad Fox Brewing Company coming to the former Mayfair and Pine space. From the press release back in August:
“Mad Fox Brewing Company announced 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.”
“Vietnamese Tet is a weeklong celebration, centered on gathering with family & friends, bringing in new luck, and paying off old debts. It is the “Feast of the First Morning of the First Day”, and the most important of any holiday.
Sprig & Sprout invites you to experience Vietnamese Tet and start your year anew with us. For our very special January Supper Club our upstairs will be transformed with glorious, some might even say gaudy and over the top, décor. Close your eyes and imagine lit lanterns of red and yellow, dancing dragons, and peach blossoms. Welcome to Sprig & Sprout during Tet.
For this 8 course Pre Fixe dinner expect traditional dishes you’ll find in every Vietnamese household. Banana leaf wrapped sticky rice cake, filled with sweet mung bean and pork, served my favorite way – pan fried! Assorted charcuterie balanced by just slightly pickled vegetables. Twice cooked crispy chicken, so laborious it’s only done once a year (kind of like thanksgiving turkey)! And, in the tradition of “Li Xi” we have good luck gifts for all our guests.
We are doing two seatings for January Tet Supper Club, and seats are anticipated to fill up very quickly. Please call the restaurant (202-333-2569), or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve. Credit card information will be required for reservations.

“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.”
