    Good Danny’s was trash. However just regular Danny’s on H St, which closed like 5-6 years ago, was legit.

    • Agreed. Good Dannys was never as good as “Evil” Dannys.

      Eddies on Bladensburg isn’t bad, but it’s no Dannys.

        I go to Eddies when I’m at Bardo.

    I’m usually one who thinks people are unnecessarily critical of the aesthetics of new construction in DC, but…damn, that is ugly.

      eh, could be worse, IMO

      I don’t think it’s that bad. Hopefully they put some trees/landscaping in front, though. With the two tall condo towers now right across from each other on that block, it feels a little closed-in.

      For those of us who live in the neighborhood it’s far, far better than what was there before. In person, it’s really not bad. At least it doesn’t look like a lego with neon stripes like a lot of new construction these days.

        +1! It’s a vast, vast improvement over what was there before. Plus let’s not forget, it’s not done yet.

        Yeah, if they had ripped down the originally beautiful apollo building for THIS, I could see getting upset. But it was a run down Murry’s and a parking lot…

        I do wish they made it have a little more character but oh well

    • The real unfortunate thing is that they hijacked the name of the building that was there before (Apollo) without re-imagining any of the incredible architectural aspects of that building. It was an old school beauty, and they could have easily incorporated some of that into the facade.

    but when will the whole foods open? anyone know?

    • Anon H St

      They’ve been saying Fall 2016, which seems doable based on the condition of the exterior, though I have no idea how much work is left to do on the inside. I’d guess November.

        It’s a good thing that despite being just over a mile away from me, there really isn’t a convenient way to get there. Otherwise, my wallet would be in serious trouble.

    I understood Nov/Dec 2016 for residential tenants and Mar/April 2017 for actual Whole Foods opening…??
