Thanks to a reader for sending word from earlier in the week. Woodland’s Facebook has a couple of photos posted Jan. 25th:

“They could have chosen to eat anywhere, but they chose us. ‪#‎WoodlandsVeganBistro‬ ‪#‎GoVegan‬ ‪#‎NuVeganCafe‬ ‪#‎KayneWest‬ ‪#‎KimK‬ ‪#‎BETHonors2015‬”

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, it’s pretty cool. Must be something about vegan restaurants attracting the power players – back in October Stevie Wonder visited Evolve Vegan in Takoma.

Side note: New condo next door to Woodland’s is looking good too on the 2900 block of Georgia Avenue, NW:

3216 Georgia Ave, NW

First we heard about the Ping Pong club and bar opening in February and now more good news for Georgia Ave – Union Drinkery. A liquor license placard posted out front says:

“New neighborhood restaurant/lounge offering light snacks and recorded music. No nude performances. Total Occupancy Load of 97 with seating for 86 inside the premises. Summer Garden with seating for 63.”

Back in August I had heard some scuttlebutt that this could become a high end fried chicken pop up but I’m not sure if that is still a plan but the most recent scuttlebutt I heard about this project – it could be coming from the same folks behind Sundevich in Shaw. Could be BBQ too. Stay tuned…
