From a press release:

“Today, chef Pepe Moncayo announces a February 8 opening for Cranes, his first U.S. restaurant and sake lounge exploring the intersections of Spanish and Japanese cuisine via Mid-Atlantic ingredients. Cranes will debut its Spanish kaiseki menu for dinner service in Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood at 724 9th St. NW in the former Ruth’s Chris space. The 12,000-square foot restaurant has 50 bar seats, a main dining room that seats 175 and a private dining room that can seat up to 25 people. Cranes will be open seven days a week and offer a weekday happy hour, with lunch to follow shortly after opening. Chef and co-owner Pepe Moncayo comes to D.C. most recently from Singapore, where his restaurant BAM! is a standout, and brings an impressive resume that began with his culinary upbringing in Barcelona, where he worked with famed chef Santi Santamaria as well as Javier and Sergio Torres.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m reaching out to see if you can post to help find more information about two good samaritans who administered CPR and saved my friend’s life at the Columbia Heights metro station on Monday, 1/6.

My friend, a woman in her late 20s, was traveling home from work and collapsed inside the station at about 6:00pm after suffering sudden cardiac arrest. She has been recovering in the hospital since then, and is doing well now.

Last week, we were able to meet the paramedics who responded to the event and they told us that before they were able to get to the station, fellow commuters were the first to respond and immediately started administering CPR. After learning that, I also spoke to the station manager who was on duty that night, and to someone who I noticed had tweeted about the event. Both described the commuters who first responded as two women, and they think one or both of them may have been medical professionals, because someone had a stethoscope out. Read More
