1909 K Street, NW
Thanks to all who emailed. Amanda reports:
“It appears that the 19th street wave of closures has spilled over to K st. Cities (formally LOOK, the rumored Icelandic restaurant) has closed. Cities was located on K st NW in between 19th and 20th st.”
Cities’ website is still active so we’ll see if this is a refresh or if a new restaurant is coming. Since their phone number is disconnected and they haven’t tweeted since March 14th I’d guess that latter. Stay tuned.
DC Reynolds joins Homestead and Ruta del Vino in the pig roasting festivities. Enjoy!
This is awesome! Thanks to the folks from Union Drinkery (3216 Georgia Ave, NW) for sending.
“Neighborhood bar. Drinks. Food. Patio. Foosball. Private events.”
That patio now looks, HOLD UP – Foosball?!??! Looks like I’m about to relive my old college glory days…

The liquor license placard posted outside the former Cafe Asia space says:

Well this is terrifying and could’ve been so much worse:

From an email:
“Just a heads up starting on 6/9 we will be open at 11am every Friday for the rest of the Summer serving not only our Full Menu (in-house or delivered via UberEats & GrubHub) but we will have a 9 HOUR HAPPY HOUR! Yup our $5 Everything Behind the Bar Happy Hour which is everyday from 5pm – 8pm will start at 11am! 9 Hours of CRISPiness!!!!”

Do you know what’s going on with Eat the Rich, Mockingbird Hill, and Southern Efficiency? I walked by the other day and it looks like they’re all closed for good (white butcher paper covering the windows), and their websites aren’t working. Have these businesses shuttered?”
From a press release:
“The most anticipated pop-up of the summer is coming. Beginning June 21st, Drink Company and Ommegang Brewery present the Game of Thrones Pop-Up Bar (PUB), in the spaces formerly known as Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency, and Eat the Rich (1839-1843 7th Street NW). (more…)
Wait, what? I want in! I think. Has anyone experienced this magic world yet?

Well, they put up a good fight…
Vivid’s Facebook page says:
“Vivid Lounge will quickly become your favorite destination this summer! We will bring some new flavor to the District by catering to a diverse crowd and offering great deals on drinks & food. Also, did we mention we’re located at the heart of DC’s historic U St. Corridor? More info coming soon.”
Handsome Cock (formerly Touchdown, and Momo’s sports bar), above the Codmother, is now Vivid Lounge.
And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that.
