At first I thought the Tenleytown’s Z Burger was launching a new Sandwich shop at 4321 Wisconsin Ave, NW. But trying to find info on line brought up an old post from Chowhound with a reader noting back in 2008:
“there’s also a sandwich place next to that is going to open up, I believe? Sandwish or something?”
I peeked inside and it still looks set up for an expansion:
There is even a menu:
I called the store and they told me that they don’t know if the sandwiches are coming. They might still be focusing on their new SW location and their “coming soon” to Columbia Heights location. But they were told that sandwiches could still be coming.
The menu says the sandwiches are all $4.19. If they ever do launch I wonder if that price will still apply… Do you think they should expand into sandwiches or just stick with burgers?
Bloo Moo Frozen Yogurt is coming to the former Marvelous Market space at 4530 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Huge space for Frozen Yogurt but I guess they do offer lots of flavors. Looks like this is their first location.
Do you know what’s happening at the former Chanya Thai restaurant in Tenleytown (you had a write up about it last July)? It seemed to close down shortly before the holidays and recently the entire front of the restaurant has been removed to reveal the original façade of the building – thankfully, since the add-on was just terrible! Any news about a new tenant or will Chanya return after the building modifications. I had a couple of take-out orders from there and the food wasn’t bad, but I have to admit that whenever I went in to pick up my food I was glad I did take-out since the interior was kind of weird.
Thanks to everyone who wrote in about the Cava Mezze Grill coming to the former Simply Ayzen/Chanya Thai restaurant space at at 4237 Wisconsin Ave, NW in Tenleytown.
Ed. Note: I also received scuttlebutt that a Cava Grill will be coming to Columbia Heights as well.
Thanks to a reader for sending an update on Al Forno Pizza coming to 3201 New Mexico Avenue, NW by Chef Geoff’s. It will now be called La Forchetta. The reader writes:
“Apparently someone claimed they were already using Il Forno as a name.
The ANC struck a deal on liquor permit, and they’re supposed to open in March.”
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a new (to me) firebox conversion. This one is from Tenleytown on Wisconsin Ave.
On a side note I’m also hearing some wild rumors that DC could be getting new streetcars…
4912 Thai Cuisine is located at 4912 Wisconsin Ave, NW.
I’ve never seen an outpouring of support like this:
Lil Omm has opened its new studio in Tenleytown at 4708 Wisconsin Ave NW. A press release said:
The 1400-sq. ft. space will continue to feature specialty classes geared towards parents and children. Class offerings include prenatal and postnatal yoga, barre fusion fitness classes, movers and preschoolers yoga and Itsy Bitsy Yoga®, designed for parents and babies kids, teens, and varying levels of adult yoga with childcare.
Silicki initially founded lil omm in 2008 in Georgetown while pregnant with her daughter and was unable to find a community committed to mindful, positive parenting and healthy living. The first studio was located in the Palisades until its closing late last spring.
Lil omm will be open seven days a week, and all drop-in classes will be $20.00. This cost includes mats, water, and snacks, plus an additional fee for childcare.

Looks like the new office building next to the Dancing Crab at 4613 Wisconsin Ave. NW is nearly completed. Thumbs up or down?
Thanks to a few readers for sending word and photos. One sends an update from the American University newsletter:
“A new Italian trattoria, Al Forno, will open this fall at 3201 New Mexico Avenue in the former Balducci’s location. The restaurant will feature pasta, a wood-burning oven for Neapolitan pizza, and other Italian fare. You also can enjoy meals outside on the terrace. Work on the restaurant is under way and we’ll keep you posted as they move closer to the opening date. The new owner, who also plans to live in the neighborhood, is excited about Al Forno being located in the community.”
Unfortunately one notes, they’ve already got a stop work order. But we’ll def. revisit to judge the pizza when they open.
Chanya Thai restaurant is located at 4237 Wisconsin Ave NW.
