Petworth busting into to the Shaw action…

From a press release:

“The team behind The Blaguard – the beloved neighborhood bar in Adams Morgan – will officially open its new restaurant, Homestead, Thursday, June 23, 2016 in the heart of Petworth at 3911 Georgia Avenue NW. The menu – developed by Executive Chef Marty Anklam – will focus on chef-inspired comfort foods in family-style portions, seasonal cocktails, and local, responsibly sourced ingredients. Homestead’s opening marks the first solo restaurant venture from Nic Makris, co-owner of The Blaguard, as well as the return of Chef Anklam to his hometown roots.

The team of locals – who first met during grade school and have remained friends ever since – hope Homestead will become a mainstay for Petworth neighbors, District dwellers and visitors alike. “DC always has and will be our home and we want Homestead to reflect that,” said owner Nic Makris. “It’s a place where people can gather with their friends time after time because we’re here to take care of them. The food and drink you eat should be as good as the company you keep.”

In the spirit of true home-style cooking, Homestead will rely on its relationships with high-quality purveyors such as Roseda Farms (MD, VA, PA) and Copper Penny Farms (MD) to offer diners a menu focused on fresh produce, meat, and game. Menu highlights include Lamb Bacon BLT Sliders ($9); Catfish Nuggets with cajun sauce ($8); and Slow Roasted Prime Rib with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Vegetable Mélange ($40), in addition to Dry Aged Braised Short Ribs and Homestead’s Roseda Farms Meatloaf, both served family style with three side dish choices ($70). Homestead’s bar program will tout a dozen rotating beers on tap. In addition to beer, the drafts will include numerous ciders, wines and house-made cocktails.

The 4,000 square-foot restaurant will accommodate 175 diners across three levels: A main floor dining room and bar; second-level mezzanine and outdoor patio accessible by its own street-level entrance; and a third-level bar featuring its own outdoor patio. An extra 70 seats will be available on the two, upper-level outdoor patios during warm weather months, in addition to plans for a rooftop garden from which Chef Anklam plans to grow the kitchen’s own supply of fresh herbs and vegetables. In addition, Homestead – which was built as a residential row house in 1922 – features woodwork refurbished from the original building and reclaimed artwork from local DC sources such as Bistro Francais, Community Forklift, Cochrans Lumber and even a Park View row home throughout the space.

Homestead will accept reservations for dinner by phone at 202-627-2371. The restaurant’s opening hours will be 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday, and 5 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Brunch service will begin on July 1.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
