Bisnow reports they hope to open by April and “The hours and offerings will also be similar to the first location.”
In September we lamented that Fish in the Hood had still not reopened after the terrible fire struck back in April. Thanks to all who sent the GoFundMe page that is now live (they are looking to raise $10,000):
“Bill White began Fish in the Neighborhood as a family business in 1996, taking orders out of a home kitchen. In no time, orders were coming in at two or three hundred each weekend. Our family eventually raised enough money to rent the building on 3601 Georgia Avenue.
For 20 years, we’ve been proud to serve great food with support from the loving people in this community. Fish in the Hood is a special place because we offer something for everyone, our customers include doctors, lawyers, politicians and actors, in addition to everyday people who just need a good meal. We love our customers, and we love to give back to the community we share. (more…)

Thanks to John for passing on from Eatsa:
“It’s with a heavy heart that we share with you that our D.C. locations are now closed. This was a difficult decision and not one that was taken lightly.
In our eagerness to get our experience in front of as many people as possible, we now realize that we expanded too quickly. We hope that with fewer locations, we can experiment and innovate faster, and come back to D.C. in the future. (more…)

I took a sneak peek of the new Jackie Lee’s at 116 Kennedy Street, NW and it’s time to get excited. Given the space and the people involved I feel like this has the potential become the Red Derby/Wonderland for the neighborhood. This is a very good thing. Stay tuned and in the meantime they are hiring servers and cooks. Those interested can email resume to [email protected]
Calle Cinco is adjacent to Alta Strada at 465 K Street, NW
From an email:
“Calle Cinco, the Spanish tapas pop-up from Chef Michael Schlow and team, will continue for the foreseeable future. Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from patrons and support from the Mt. Vernon Triangle neighborhood, Schlow, Chef George Rodrigues and the rest of the team have decided to extend the tapas concept.
As such, the team has debuted a new happy hour menu, available every day of the week from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. featuring $5 drinks, and an assortment of cured meats, cheeses and tapas priced at $7 and under. Highlights from the menu include two kinds of “bikini sandwiches,” Serrano ham and Manchego or mushroom, Mahon and truffle, a play on a grilled cheese that’s popular in Barcelona; as well as tortilla espanola, papas bravas and pan con tomate. (more…)
Free falafel at Naf Naf Grill of course. Thanks to Britnie for sending:
“Line around the corner, but moving quickly if this is of interest to anyone. It’s free until 3. 19th and K.”
Dukem, the Ethiopian restaurant, has been building lately but I am not sure what.
A month ago they had a pallet of 2x4s delivered to the roof. They were more for framing than a roof. Then there were plywood walls put up behind Apple Lounge, a hooka bar they own on the second floor next door. That all stopped when a orange DC Stop Order sign was put on the door.
A week or two later, the Stop Order was taken down and I spotted more workers on the roof over the weekend. They seems to be putting building wrap on the plywood to create a rooftop room adjacent to Apple Lounge. Then another Stop Order was put up on the front door. Now the Stop Order is still there but a building permit for a new roof was added above it. Work seems to have stopped.
What were they trying to put up? A new roof? a roofdeck? Does anyone know what they intend to do?”
