2201 14th Street, NW at W Street

Thanks to Lauren for sending from the 14W apartment building “The management sent it out to residents to notify them of construction hours/noise. Super exciting news! Lolita’s is amazing. This will be an awesome addition.”:

“14&W has been leased by a company out of Boston. They are opening their first restaurant in DC, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar restaurant.”

Back in December we reported that a new restaurant from Boston’s COJE management group was coming to the old Kapnos space. Check out some of their Boston menus here and stay tuned for an opening date.

From a press release:

“Amazon.com today announced that Prime members in the greater Washington, D.C. area can now enjoy delivery from 150 popular restaurants, including Maketto, Ben’s Next Door, Hill Country Barbecue Market, Kapnos, b DC Penn Quarter, and many more. Amazon Restaurants is expanding its delivery territory from Northern Virginia to customers in the Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Adams Morgan, H Street, Shaw, and Downtown neighborhoods, to name a few.

“The hustle and bustle in the nation’s capital can make it difficult to try all the amazing restaurants around town,” said Gus Lopez, general manager of Amazon Restaurants. “Now, Amazon Restaurants makes it easy to skip traffic and get delicious meals from top restaurants conveniently delivered to your office or home in an hour or less.”

Using the Amazon or Prime Now mobile apps or by visiting www.amazon.com/restaurants, Prime members in D.C. can order from participating restaurants, browse menus, track the status of their delivery, and watch as their delivery driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time.

Once an order is placed, the food will be delivered in one hour or less. Amazon Restaurants offers customers transparent pricing—there are no menu markups. If a customer finds a restaurant item on Amazon Restaurants that is priced higher than the regularly priced item on the restaurant’s current online menu within 24 hours of placing the order, Amazon will refund that customer the price of the item.

“Who doesn’t love being a Prime member and all the benefits that come with it?” said Jesse Hiney, general manager of Osteria Morini DC. “Now my customers will be able to get our delicious pasta delivered right to their doors. Sounds dangerous in a delicious way!”

From a press release:

“Washington, D.C. chef and restaurateur Mike Isabella is opening two new eateries at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals, in Southeast Washington, D.C. this season. Kapnos at the Park will be a spin-off of his popular brand of Greek restaurants serving unique gyro sandwiches, while Catchfly Kitchen offers Nats fans Southern-style fried chicken and St. Louis-style ribs. The two concepts will be located side-by-side on the Gallery Level, behind Section 301. Isabella already operates a location of G at Nationals Park, his popular Italian sandwich shop, on the Main Concourse behind Section 136.

“Our location of G at Nationals Park has been such a blast that we jumped at the chance to open up new concepts at the ballpark,” said Chef Mike Isabella. “And it’s not just an opportunity to sell more food; the Nationals organization and their fans have a special relationship that translates to a lively and engaging game-day experience that we are proud to be a part of.”

601 Massachusetts Ave, NW

Back in April 2014 we first heard that RPM Italian Restaurant, from celebrity couple Giuliana and Bill Rancic, would be coming to the former NPR building at 7th and Mass Ave NW. But we hadn’t heard any updates since. Now a tipster sends word that not only is RPM Italian still coming but will be joined by a Kapnos (Market?) as well as a SoulCycle. Updates when/if more info becomes available.

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“I don’t know if everyone already knows the plans for the spaces on 14th street immediately adjacent (to the north) of G Sandwich, but I was walking by this weekend and spotted the following architect plans in the window of one of the stores.

A little hard to read with the glare, but one says “hair salon” and the other “cleaners”.
