9th and N Street, NW
Last week I shared some scuttlebutt at that a mezcal bar was coming to The Colonel in Shaw. I still hear it’s coming and will have a strong Mexican restaurant menu as well. But nevermind that – because what was confirmed yesterday is epic. Washington City Paper reported:
“The Red Hen owners Michael Friedman, Michael O’Malley, and Sebastian Zutant are teaming up with Boundary Stone owners Gareth Croke and Colin McDonough to open an Italian-American restaurant focused around pizza. The place will be called All Purpose and open at 1250 9th St. NW late this year.”
Also reported yesterday by the Washington Post:
“Tiffany MacIsaac is settling down in Shaw. The former executive pastry chef at Neighborhood Restaurant Group has signed a lease to open a storefront for her Buttercream Bakeshop at 1250 Ninth St. NW.”
All I can say is – epic. Updates as both (and I haven’t given up on the Mexican/mezcal spot either) get closer to opening. Freaking epic!
