The eagerly anticipated EatsPlace opening up across the street from Looking Glass Lounge and DC Reynolds is super close to opening (I’m told could be as soon as a week.) Owner Katy Chang shares the good news:

“Just wanted to give you a heads up that sample menus are up for the chefs in residence: DC Born & Raised and Mason Dixie Biscuit, both popping up at EatsPlace through the end of the year. Of course they’re subject to change but thought it might be fun to see where these incredibly talented and creative chefs are heading.”

“Hi PoPville neighbors!

We believe that our cat, Beedie, got out of the house on Thursday (9/11) when some contractors were doing some work and we’re hoping that he’s alive and still nearby.

If you happen to see an orange american shorthair with small white rings on his tail in the 5th and Hamilton St. NW area of Petworth, please contact Erik at 202.302.6695. He’s 11 years old and has only been an indoor cat so he may be scared/hiding.

Again, please contact me if you’ve seen this cat.

Thank you!
~Erik”

“Dear PoPville,

What to do about a neighbor who has been running an electrical generator early nonstop since Saturday? It’s definitely a noise nuisance, and I’m pretty sure no one should need to do this if they have power otherwise. Any ideas? This is near the intersection of 13th and Taylor. Finally called MPD last night who said an officer would be dispatched, but it only shut off for some brief period in the night and was back on before I left for work this morning.”

After destroying Petworth Citizen back in November, The Post’s Tom Sietsema is much happier with chef Makoto Hamamura other restaurant Crane & Turtle located across the street. He writes:

“The food at Crane & Turtle can sometimes make you swoon and other times make you scratch your head. One thing you will never be is bored.”

Which is a phenomenal upgrade from the Petworth Citizen review:

“Reaction, after three visits: The check can’t come soon enough.”
