I finally got a chance to taste the relatively new Macon Bistro & Larder up in Chevy Chase [5120 Connecticut Avenue, NW] – and I guess I went in not knowing what to think but it was absolutely delicious (I had the scallops which were just insane.) Check out their full menu here. This is one of the few restaurants I’ve been to where every single thing from drinks to appetizers to entree (too full for dessert but had some tasty cookies) was just amazing. [The last restaurant I’ve been to like this was Fiola.] Anyway, good stuff. Anyone else take a taste?


“Any of you who live in the Chevy Chase/Tenley area please, please be on the lookout for our dog. His name is Frank and he is approximately 8 years old. He is a terrier mix and is very affectionate. He also has incredible wanderlust. He is wearing a red Puppia harness and his tags still have my South Dakota address. He got loose from 45th and Western at approximately 6:00pm.

I know this is a long, long reach but you never know. He was a little stray that we found in a storm seven years ago and we miss him already. He does have tags and he is microchipped.”

Update: Found!

“Dear PoPville,

The 100-year-old home at 3823 Morrison Street, NW has been demolished in defiance of more than 200 area residents who sought to have the Arts & Crafts house restored or sold to someone who would. This demolition is sparking a renewed effort to obtain a historic district for Chevy Chase, DC.

In addition, we learned yesterday that developer Robert Holman may have possibly sold the property (but perhaps not yet gone to settlement) to another developer. So it’s unclear what exactly will be built on the site.

See below for an open letter with more details.
