Thanks to all who sent emails and tweets:
“U Scoot – corner of Vermont & U. I walk past every day and just noticed it yesterday (after being gone this weekend). I did a quick google but didn’t find anything.”
I stopped in yesterday but the owner was with a customer – (grand opening soon) – here’s a peek inside:
The last untouched corner at 14th and Florida Ave, NW – goes down. Thanks to a reader for sending:
“Florida Liquors, open as recently Saturday now closed. Saw demo crews carrying out fixtures yesterday.”
A yelp reviewer writes:
“the selection is slim, the teller is behind bulletproof glass, and there’s always someone standing out front panhandling”
Updates when we learn more about plans for the corner.

Oh let this be true!!
“I heard from an Apple store representative in Georgetown that they’re opening an Apple Store in the”U St corridor area”.
Any guesses where?
Ed. Note: This is the same way we first heard about the Trader Joe’s now at 14th and U so I’ll be cautiously optimistic!
Not sure what is going on here, but the owners appear to be building an elevated deck and privacy walls on their townhouse. To add to the “fun,” they have decided to incorporate a “burst of color” with bright blues and oranges. Never thought anything would become more eye catching than the much-maligned “middle finger” pop-up (which shares this alley) but this deck is giving it a run for it’s money.”
This rental is located at 1747 T Street, Northwest. The listing says:

Update – thanks to a commenter for finding the facebook message:
“We’re sad to announce that the U-Street location will not be the re-opening of the New Orleans Cafe that we had hoped for. We hope to re-open one day, but we have no news on when, where or if it will happen. We love our customers and are so blessed to have had their patronage during the past two decades.”
A reader reports:
“Do you have any idea what happened to the new Bistro on U street that was opened about a month ago by the folks that operated Bardia’s New Orleans cafe in Adam’s Morgan? The new Bistro on U has been empty and closed for like two weeks now. I’m bummed because I thought it was a great value and a good addition to the neighborhood.”
