From a press release:

“We are pleased to announce that JINYA Ramen Bar, a 4,000-square-foot, full-service, sit-down restaurant, is slated to open at 1336 14th Street NW [Ed. Note: Formerly Ghana Cafe.] in Washington D.C.’s Logan Circle early this summer.

One of the first pioneers of 14th Street 3.0 is closing later this year according to the Washington Business Journal:

“Cork will combine its wine bar and market businesses into the latter’s building at 1805 14th St. NW, according to a source with knowledge of the changes.”

Cork Wine Bar opened up in the former Sparky’s cafe back in 2008. They were also one of the first to start the District’s wine bar craze. Updates when more is known about the move.

From MPD:

“At approximately 1:45pm this afternoon, 2 subjects approached an individual in the 1200 block of S Street NW and attempted to rob her. The suspects ran off and responding units located them in the 2000 block of 9th Street NW. Both individuals were quickly stopped without incident and positively identified as the subjects who committed the attempted robbery. At the time of the arrest, one of the individuals was in possession of a handgun, which was recovered. Both subjects are adult males and were charged with Assault with the Intent to Rob While Armed, along with other charges. The victim of the robbery attempt was not injured and no property was obtained.

This is another excellent example of the community and the police working together to get 2 violent criminals and an illegal handgun off the streets.”

no dacha

Whoa thanks to John for sending:

“The Dacha backlash has already started. I counted 17 “No Dacha on S Street” signs during my walk down S Street, NW.”

Yesterday we learned about Dacha’s plans for the current parking lot at 14th and S Street, NW (1740 14th Street, NW):

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare. Sidewalk café with 150 seats and a Summer Garden with 450 seats. Total Occupancy Load of 600.”

Update from Greg Pulscher: “I found this yards sign combo far more entertaining.”


14th and S Street, NW

Ed. Note: Some days, it’s teacher parent conference day and your kid only has a half day of daycare. Some days you’re in charge of the kid for the half day they have off. Some days you go to the zoo on a beautiful day and have a super fun time. Some days the liquor license applications for one of the biggest most popular beer gardens in DC are released. So I’m a day late but the carousel ride alone was worth it!!

I believe the expression is – boom!!!

The liquor license application for Dacha Beer Garden at 1740 14th Street, NW (the parking lot at 14th and S across the street from the Garden District beer garden) says:

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare. Sidewalk café with 150 seats and a Summer Garden with 450 seats. Total Occupancy Load of 600.

79 Potomac Ave, SE in May 2016

And back in March we learned that Dacha was also coming to Navy Yard “sometime in 2018”.

The liquor license application for Dacha Beer Garden at 79 Potomac Ave, SE says:

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare with 350 indoor seats. Sidewalk Café with 250 seats and a Summer Garden with 550 seats. Total Occupancy Load is 900.

STAY TUNED for updates on all fronts.

From a press release:

“At Siren by Robert Wiedmaier within The Darcy hotel, the dining room has a jaunty nautical air, and the menu is driven by the whims of wind and currents as they affect the availability of the world’s most delectable seafood. As an avid fisherman, Wiedmaier is reeling in the kinds of trophy fish that deserve that sacred spot on the living room wall. When Siren opens in late April 2017, it will bring a distinctly salty breeze to the Rhode Island Avenue corridor between Washington, DC’s Dupont and Logan Circles. (more…)
