“former Ten 01 space is rebranding to Ben’s upstairs”

Ben’s Upstairs Website says:

“At Ben’s Upstairs you can savor delicious Southern-influenced cuisine with a hint of Caribbean flavors”

Check out their Menus here.

Ed. Note: TEN 01 opened back in Nov. 2015.

Looks like Ben’s Upstairs (which makes sense since the original U Street location has a Ben’s Next Door) was the original plan – when you look at an old photo from 2014:

Thanks to a reader for sending word about City Dogs opening another location on H Street, NE. On Facebook they say:

“Our contractor is aiming for the second week of November for the work to be complete so we can open. We’ll have full availability at that time, with the likely exception that Thanksgiving and Christmas may fill up quickly after opening.”

City Dogs also has a location at 1832 18th St, NW: “City Dogs provides a fun, cage-less environment for dog daycare and boarding. Make your pooch a happy dog!”


Thanks to a reader for sending. H Street Organic Market closed back in August of ’15. Kiddie University’s website says:

“Kiddie University has found a way that we can work together with parents and community to open a brand new childcare facility and help solve the critical shortage of quality childcare in Washington, DC, particularly Capitol Hill. The premise will accommodate approximately 60 infant, toddler, and pre-school children.

You now have the first access to reserve your child’s space for this Fall/Winter. Exclusive to waitlist families for a limited time, you have the opportunity to join our tuition buy down program and secure your child’s space in the program now, before spaces are announced to the community. No need to join any more 1 yr+ long waitlists! This program allows us to provide a high quality childcare center and program, without the need to charge outrageous tuition prices.”
