From an email:
“Momofuku CCDC is celebrating their third anniversary this month with a fried chicken and dumpling party. This has been a landmark year for the restaurant, welcoming a new chef who has completely transformed the menu, and there’s no better way to celebrate than over food. Executive Chef Tae Strain has invited Danny Lee and Scott Drewno of ChiKo, Tim Ma of Kyirisan, and Spike Gjerde of A Rake’s Progress to prepare their take on dumplings and fried chicken. Beer and drinks will be served with a portion of sales being donated to DC Central Kitchen.

TL writes: “Sad to see them go, but if they expanded their concept into a full Italian deli closer to the Petworth Metro or on upper 14th Street, they’d crush it.”
From Pepperoni Chic:
“Hello Friends and Supporters of Pepperoni Chic
Remember we are a “Pop-up” and now we are Popping-out – Soon.
Pepperoni Chic will leave the location at 5111 Georgia Avenue, NW on Saturday, October 27 – our last night of business.
We have met so many wonderful people in the past few months and will miss all of you. (more…)
Oh my God. The sable, the salmon – DO NOT sleep on the Salmon BLT – perhaps the best seafood sandwich in all Washington D.C. Neopol Savory Smokery is quite possibly the most under-hyped but best seafood in town. They currently have an outpost in Union Market and when I stopped by the new spot on Saturday they looked about ready to open in Georgetown on Grace Street. Grace Street, by the by, has quietly become a phenomenal little street not to be missed, bookmarked by Chaia Tacos and Dog Tag Bakery on one end and Sundevich and Grace Street Coffee on the other with more good stuff in between. Neopol will fit in on the block quite nicely. (more…)

“Green Almond Pantry (in the old Seasonal Pantry spot on 9th St) looks closer to opening! They have merchandise and a cute sign displayed in the window. We were over at Sushi Capitol on Saturday and the folks there said that Green Almond is in the process of doing menu-testing and expects to open “soon.”
STAY TUNED for an exact opening date.
