We knew sandwiches were coming back to the former Fast Gourmet space and now we got a name – Panino Gourmet. They couldn’t say exactly when they’d be opening but it looked like only days or a couple weeks out. STAY TUNED.
14th and W Street, NW
Thanks to Pedro for sending (also thanks to Vaughn for sharing his conversation with Halal Guys last night.)
“I just took a pic of a new sign on the Halal Guys front door on H street. I think it says it all.”
Definitely “indefinitely”? STAY TUNED.

This is the former Saint Michel space (previously Camille’s Cafe) which closed back in October 2013.
From a press release:
“Now open to the public, Sushi Gakyu provides patrons an upscale dining experience serving traditional and modern-style sushi, sashimi and Japanese fish menus. Bethany Kazaba, Co-Founder and Principal of Neighborhood Retail Group secured the new location which seats approximately 67 guests with an additional 24 seats outside as well as offers an Edomae Ginza-style chef’s table in which Chef Yoshi will create custom dishes based on guest’s preferences–the way sushi and sashimi are traditionally served in Japan.
Followers of Chef Yoshi know him from his successful Bethesda, MD restaurant, Yuzu Japanese Dining. Chef Yoshi has practiced the art of sushi making in the United States and Japan for more than 30 years and is known for starting his culinary career at the prestigious ANA Hotel restaurant in Tokyo.”

So much (finally) happening in North Country!! Thanks to Laura Brogan and Robert Pigott for sending photos and word that Imm Thai on Georgia had opened up next door to the new BBQ Bus Smokehouse (5832 Georgia Avenue, NW.)
You can check out their H Street Menus here.

From Nino’s Bakery owner Miranda Rinaldi:
“Nino’s Bakery will be opening this fall 2017 at 1310 L St NW. Steps from Franklin Square, we encourage our neighbors to take a break from the office and indulge in the simple elegance of artisan pastries and chocolates made from scratch.
Nino’s Bakery is named after the owner’s dachshund whom she adopted while living in Italy. During his years in Milan, Nino attempted to enter every bakery in the city in his search for pastries. Now that he has come to America, Nino is finally getting his own bakery, which sadly he still cannot enter. So give yourself a moment of bliss and enjoy a pastry for Nino.”

There are a lot of rumors swirling around the 16th St Heights neighborhood that the people behind Boundary Stone are taking over the Swampoodle space. Their sponsoring the Kennedy Street Festival only strengthened those rumors. Have you heard anything about this? Something you can get to the bottom of?”
BREAKING: One of the owners of Boundary Stone is indeed in negotiations to take over the Swampoodle space at 14th and Colorado Ave, NW. Now keep in mind the negotiations are still ongoing but if I was a betting man I’d say there is a very, very good chance this will happen. STAY TUNED for many many more details if/when it does.
