District Winery finally announced an opening date for their dope new building in Navy Yard:
“Our boutique urban winery is set in the heart of The Yards, a bustling community in DC’s Navy Yard along the Anacostia River. Winemaker Conor McCormack produces our premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. You will be able to tour Washington, DC’s only operational commercial winery to learn about how our wines are produced, then settle into the restaurant and savor our artisanal wines while indulging in our seasonal menu. For those looking to commemorate a special occasion, we will also function as a private event venue, featuring full-service weddings and corporate gatherings with wine crafted on-site, exquisite cuisine, and the beautiful winery as a backdrop.”
“Ana is a seasonal American restaurant offering refined fare inspired by worldwide cuisine from Executive Chef Michael Gordon and Chef de Cuisine Ben Lambert. Our menu showcases fresh, seasonal ingredients presented in thoughtful, approachable dishes.
Ana’s juxtaposition of warm and cool finishes is peppered with mid-century modern elements. Floor to ceiling windows create a bright, airy, urban-industrial gathering space in Ana’s dining room and bar. The outdoor patio offers views of the Anacostia River with a mix of tables and soft seating around fire pits.”

My husband and I didn’t see this covered on your blog but thought it should be since the Greek Spot has been such an institution/go-to for numerous years in the U street area.
We were pretty taken aback/saddened by the news of Gregory Gabriel Kavadias‘ passing, when we got takeout from greek spot tonite for first time in a few months. They had a sign up honoring the life of Gregory. I remember him from the very beginnings of their opening. Beyond being the purveyor of some delicious food, he was always super personable and it was nice to chat with him about various happenings, from food to family to music. (more…)

The big storm a couple weekends ago knocked down a tree in our named alley (Kings Court in Hill East) and now branches/huge parts are in a couple of my neighbors’ backyards, blocking alley access. DC has told them that the city is not responsible for removal because the trees were in an alley, not on the street. They’ve reached out to CM Allen’s office but nothing has happened. Is this accurate? Any ideas/avenues to try to resolve this?”
