Last week we mentioned that a liquor license placard had been posted at the former Masa 14 space on 14th Street. Tons more details now from a press release:

1825 14th Street, NW

Gypsy Kitchen​ (1825 14th Street NW), a new-to-the-area Mediterranean-style restaurant and bar, is slated to open in ​Spring 2020​ in the space formerly occupied by M​ asa 14​. The new D.C. outpost of the Atlanta-based brand will span ​6,400 square feet ​and boasts a 1,100​-square-foot rooftop deck, with a capacity of ​217 guests.​

The upcoming Gypsy Kitchen will highlight pan-Mediterranean cuisine with Greek, Moroccan, Indian, Middle Eastern and other regional influences. With a small plate menu inspired by travel, Gypsy Kitchen will bring the allure of a nomadic lifestyle to D.C in a way that encourages communal dining. Summer Ptitim Stew with ramps, snow peas and green curry sauce, Bissara served with golden beets and Aleppo pepper, Tarama accompanied by purple potatoes and kalamata olives and Spinach and Coconut Raita topped with basil seeds will be among Gypsy Kitchen’s diverse range of menu items.

Alex Curley​, the Chief Operating Officer of ​Southern Proper Hospitality​, the restaurant group behind Gypsy Kitchen, is no stranger to international fare. With the new Gypsy Kitchen, Curley — a D.C. native who helped open​ Barcelona Wine Bar​ — is once again lending his talents to the 14th Street Corridor.

Gypsy Kitchen will launch with dinner, weekend brunch and happy hour offerings.

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.
