The liquor license placard for Little Beast says:
“A new Restaurant serving Italian cuisine. Seating Capacity of 74 and Total Occupancy Load of 99 inside premises. Seating Capacity of 89 and Total Occupancy Load of 97 for the Outdoor Sidewalk Café.”
Washington CityPaper reports it’s from the man behind Red Light and Drafting Table in Logan Circle as well as Bakers & Baristas in Penn Quarter. The plans for the restaurant include:
“Little Beast plans to operate from 7 a.m. to midnight every night of the week. During the day, they’ll serve house-baked pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and Red Velvet Cupcakes alongside Vigilante Coffee. Come evening, the restaurant will switch over to a wood-fired food menu complete with creative pizzas, 10 to 12 sharable dishes, and larger plates like pastas, roasted chicken, and rockfish.”
Updates as they get closer to opening.

Thanks to Matt for sending our favorite putt putt city ride:
“I spotted this the other day near 10th Street and Independence Ave. SE in Eastern Market. The car is covered in what appears to be astro-turf and a few other items, and I’m pretty sure it’s a 1993-1997 Geo Prizm.”

Executive Chef of Rosario and Smoke & Barrel in Adams Morgan, Logan McGear, had also become executive chef of Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights and Brookland Pint in Edgewood. Kidding, kidding – it’s proper Brookland.
McGear notes his role at “Rosario and Smoke & Barrel will remain the same as I take on the roll of Executive Chef at all 4 restaurants.” Looking forward to seeing some menu changes coming to the Pints.

From a press release:
“Award-winning restaurateur Ashok Bajaj of Knightsbridge Restaurant Group is pleased to announce the mid-March anticipated opening of his latest venture, SABABA, at 3309 Connecticut Avenue, Washington, DC 20008. SABABA replaces Cleveland Park’s 20-year landmark restaurant Ardeo+Bardeo, becoming the new neighbor to popular Bindaas, which remains in service during the buildout of the new restaurant.
SABABA, which comes from the Hebrew slang, meaning cool and carefree, will offer “modern Israeli” cuisine drawing inspiration from the Middle East, Turkey and Greece. The menu will be comprised of a nice balance of innovative cuisine and traditional fare. A large portion of the menu will be produce-driven. (more…)
