Thanks to Ian for sending the update: “Looks like they’re taking down the giant wood facade and going with on-brand papered window, but it’s certainly progress!! Also. wondering if we’re getting a “Sweetgreen 3.0” makeover at this location. It got panned in its NYC rollout, but could see it being a hit in the must-eat-now crowd of Cap Hill staffers.”

Anna writes about the Capitol Hill Sweetgreen on Penn Ave:


Cramping my style. Do you know anything? or perhaps a reader does?”

Ed. Note: I’ve written Sweetgreen for an update but haven’t heard back from them. In possible positive news I did hear that the W Street location has reopened.

624 E Street, NW

As for the Sweetgreen coming to the former Taylor Gourmet in Penn Quarter – it’s still not open yet either.

Starting this month, DC-area athletes, design fans, and real estate aficionados alike can enjoy the latest issue of what the real estate bible The Real Deal describes as “McSweeney’s meets Dwell” — the company magazine from DC’s tech-driven brokerage Compass. Following the launch of the premiere issue last fall, the spring edition of Compass Quarterly is themed around The Active Life, blending curated lifestyle content, high-end homes, and personal glimpses at Compass’ agents and how they engage with their communities.

With the agency having recently added offices in Chevy Chase and Georgetown to their Capitol Hill and Dupont Circle presences, there’s much local interest in the issue, including the voices of agents Veronica Seva-Gonzalez and Jeff Chin and the creative contributions of DC photographer Emma McAlary (Washington Post, Refinery29). Interspersed are DC properties across a myriad of neighborhoods, price points, and aesthetics: stately Colonials, charming Cape Cods, and graceful Victorian townhouses.
