Back in Nov. 2012 we learned that a new restaurant called Baby Wale would be opening by the Convention Center at 1124 9th St, NW. There was a “Good Food Coming Soon Sign” posted for ages:
Thanks to a reader for letting me know that new signage had been posted announcing a June 2013 opening. Stay tuned!

Upon first glance, I was a bit surprised by the price for a house without a basement in this location, but after researching a bit, see that this is a Nantucket Holdings renovation from 2012. Even outside of this crazy short supply/high demand market place, Nantucket Holdings properties often sell for a premium. Nantucket Holdings sold the property in March of last year for $690,000.

Thanks to David for sending the photo above. Back in Sept. 2012 we learned that Thally would be coming to 1316 9th Street, NW. From their liquor license application:
“New Restaurant. A modern, energetic bistro serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Background music will be provided. Sidewalk Cafe with 10 seats. Occupancy Load of 99.”
I spoke with owner Sherman Outhuok who tells me that the build-out should take approximately 12 weeks with an anticipated late June opening. Sherman is currently a general manager/bartender at the great Columbia Heights’ spot Maple located at 3418 11th St, NW. He tells me that he and his partner chef Ron Tanaka (formerly of New Heights in Woodley Park) plan on opening a very comfortable neighborhood spot serving contemporary American fare. There will also be a good selection of wine by the glass (24), draft beers, and cocktails to compliment the food. They plan to keep the place casual and at a lower price point than some of the other newly opened restaurants.
And for those curious about the name – Thally comes from a carriage house located in the alley that was named Tally-Ho back in the day. That and Sherman’s daughter is nick-named Tally – thus Thally was born.
Stay tuned for updates on the menu and the space as they get closer to opening.

Washington, DC, needs at least two things: more affordable neighborhood restaurants, and at least one locally owned brewpub.
Our objective is three-fold: We want to create a neighborhood gathering place that makes and serves well-priced delicious food and amazing fresh beer; we want to help our neighborhood thrive by investing in the community and its residents; and we want to anchor Washington, DC on the map as a destination for craft beer. Our business will invest in the growth and development of our employees as well as of our community.
Our Beers: The Short Version
The most important ingredient in beer is the yeast used for fermentation: No other ingredient has more influence on the aromas and flavors of the finished beer. Our brewmaster will source a wide range of yeasts from around the world as well as cultivate “house strains” unique to Right Proper.
Using mixed fermentation techniques as well as secondary and tertiary fermentation cycles, we’ll produce unique beers with complex flavor profiles. Our guests will taste beers that are bitter, beers that are sweet or even distinctly sour. Certain beers will be offered on cask to be served from a hand-pulled beer engine.
We’ll have a two-part beer program, standards and baroques. The standards will consist of beers that can be categorized into definitive historical beer styles. Any lover of craft beer will recognize these brews. The brewmaster will use his talents to put a unique twist on the different styles while still remaining true to the age-old brewing traditions that gave birth to them.
The baroques will consist entirely of barrel aged or barrel fermented beers. Beers of different flavor and aroma profiles will be blended to create unique products. Customers can also expect to find different versions of the same beer dry hopped, blended with fruit or with added herbs and spices.
“the team is now planning to start service in October.”

Earlier in the week we noted the cool way Table was concealing their dumpsters at 903 N Street, NW. Thanks to a reader for sending a curious update from the Old City Green’s newsletter:
Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) wants this removed because “it is a new structure in-front of an old building”. What do you think? There is a petition to keep it up at the restaurant, so stop by! (903 N St. NW)

From the back:
Quite a change from 2011:
Back in mid-January we first heard about a new restaurant coming to 8th and Florida Ave, NW. Finally word on what is happening at 801 Florida Ave, NW (just east of 9th and U Street.) A liquor license application reveals:
“A Mediterranean restaurant serving tapas and high end cocktails with a seating capacity for 150 patrons and total load of 150. Request an entertainment endorsement with live performances jazz for brunch or private events and summer garden with a seating capacity for 25 patrons.”
Stay tuned for updates as they get closer to opening.
Unfortunately Table’s dumpsters are in front of the restaurant. Fortunately they did an awesome good job concealing them:
Sadly they can’t enclose it completely:

From a press release:
More than six years after Dolci Gelati first came to DC, Chef Gianluigi Dellaccio and his business partner/wife Anastasia have announced that they will open Dolci Gelati Café, their first storefront, in Takoma Park this spring—a second location will follow next year in the Shaw neighborhood, at the City Market at O. Dolci Gelati can currently be found at Nationals’ Stadium and the National Zoo as well as in restaurants and markets throughout the Washington Metro area such as Whole Foods and Taylor Gourmet.
The first planned location will open its doors in Takoma Park early this spring and is being opened in tandem with fellow Italian and local entrepreneur Marcello Mina. This first shop, just 10 minutes from the Dolci Gelato laboratorio “kitchen”, will be on 7000 Carroll ave., in the heart of the trendy neighborhood.
Dolci Gelati Café will open their second location next spring at the City Market at O development on 8th street between O and P Street. The complex will be erected in Shaw and will also include a renovated state of the art Giant as well as a hotel, apartment complex and other retail and restaurants.
Chef Gianluigi currently has created more than 300 varieties of homemade gelato, and will bring his crowd-pleasing favorites such as salted caramel, white chocolate raspberry and bacio to the store daily. The Chef will also experiment with fresh, new flavors including creating a health-conscious line with tantalizing treats like Green Tea, Pomegranate Powerberry and a Super Citrus Antioxidant sorbet. Dolci Gelati Café will also feature a Social Good flavor, from which the profits will go to a variety of great causes.
“For years my creations have been bound by what the markets would order. I have so many new ideas that I want to try both in gelato and pastry and now I have my own place to do so,” said Chef Gianluigi. “I can’t wait to connect with our customers on a new level and offer new varieties that they have only imagined, while staying true to my family’s recipe that I learned growing up in Italy.”
Before creating Dolci Gelati, Chef Gianluigi was a Pastry Chef at Galileo, as well as an Italian Water Polo Champion. The Chef plans to incorporate his background as a pastry chef to develop many new items. The menu will include “cupcake cones”- ice cream cones filled with cupcake and chocolate ganache center, gelato sundaes, pastry and several varieties of praline nuts and artisan kettle corn (chocolate covered, cotton candy, bacon, and parmesan).
Dolci Gelati was started in 2005 by Former Italian champion water polo player turned pastry chef Gianluigi Dellaccio. Dolci Gelati offers many great varieties of gelato with a consistent level of quality that can only be achieved with artisan precision. The process starts every morning with deliveries from local dairy farms and other handpicked fruits, fine chocolates and other fresh ingredients. Gelato offers the same great taste as ice cream with 1/3 the fat and none of the artificial ingredients. Gianluigi uses a 100% authentic Italian recipe and local fresh ingredients to bring you a little bit of Italy across the Atlantic.

THe Revival of the Slum Historique building in Shaw continues to amaze me. The new barbershop that is set to open the first week of April is looking great:
Here’s what the building looked like in only 2010:
Back in 2010 plans were for The Independent, a new coffee house bar and lounge. Then in 2012 I heard some scuttlebutt that Richard Sandoval was considering opening a space here. Turns out he’ll be opening Toro Toro downtown. Now the space is up for lease again. I hear the Hilton brothers (Marvin, Brixton, Chez Billy etc.) may open something on the 2nd floor and somebody new may take over the first floor. But at the moment no new tenant has been found yet. Stay tuned.
