It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything about the former Pines of Florence space turning into a new Japanese restaurant called Ogawa. While they (owners of the incredibly awesome Sushi Capitol on Capitol Hill) had hoped to open many months ago – we actually have real progress. They’ve applied for a liquor license that says:

Traditional Japanese Sushi and Washoku Sushi in addition to fish and vegetable. Seating capacity of 56 and Total Occupancy Load of 75.”

I’ve emailed the owners to get a new opening date – standby. A peek inside is very promising (to my mural loving heart):

“Dear PoPville,

The Friends of Mitchell Park (23rd St and S St, NW) are having a photo contest to celebrate a beautiful city park. Yeah!

However, they advertised their contest by stapling(!!) advertisements to city trees all around Dupont Circle. Not only is it against DC regulations to advertise on public property or permanently affix anything to trees, it’s quite ironic and sad to see a group celebrate one public good by desecrating another.

Note that they taped, not stapled ads on the trees in their park, so they knew that stapling ads to trees is harmful.

Anytime tree bark is pierced, even by staples, it creates an entry point for disease and parasites. Our street trees have a tough enough life without a pro-park group stabbing them with ads.

I’ve removed and trashed all the tree-stapled ads I could find. I hope others will do the same.”

A reader asks:

“Out of curiosity, did anyone hear more about the Pines of Florence-turned Jambalaya Room-turned Ogama in Kalorama? The awning is still there but there doesn’t seem to be any progress which is a shame.”

The folks from Ogawa (same folks behind Sushi Capitol on the Hill) tell me:

“We are working hard to open in the next two month period, however, with all plans, there may be delays, but our intention is to open doors in the next 2 months.”
