Yesterday we learned about Union Kitchen Grocery’s opening date in Shaw and now we got some action in NoMa – Streets Market soft opens today. And it is huge. I went to a preview party for the residents of the building above the store on Wednesday night and it’s pretty dope.
In addition to a huge grocery store (more photos below) there is a also a huge bar with tvs and 2nd floor seating.
Check out the beer menu for the bar: (more…)
From the Mayor’s Office:
“[Yesterday], Mayor Bowser broke ground on Good Food Markets, delivering job opportunities and fresh food options to the Bellevue community in Ward 8. Through the Neighborhood Prosperity Fund, an initiative launched by Mayor Bowser, South Capitol Improvement LLC received an $880,000 grant to support the buildout for a grocer tenant as part of the 225,000 square-foot development that includes 195 units of affordable housing and 5,500 square-feet of community commercial space.

Glenn’s Market on 20th Street was recently the target of a “visit” (a.k.a. undercover set up, a.k.a. sting) by ABRA investigators. A 17-year-old bought an alcoholic beverage to-go (they sell beer, wine, cider, etc. — lots of it locally sourced) and the cashier forgot to ask for his license/birthday.
The person in line right behind the 17-year-old was the ABRA enforcer. Glenn’s was fined $4,000 (!!!!) and forced to close their to-go sections until Sunday. You can still buy a beverage if you’re eating in, but nothing to-go.
Ed. Note: Holiday Hours are
12/26 – 12/28: 12pm – 8pm
12/29 – 12/30: 9am – 9pm
New Year’s Eve: 8am – 9pm
New Year’s Day: 12pm – 8pm
This is a REAL hit for a small merchant.
Yes, the cashier made a mistake and it’s an important regulation to honor for lots of reasons. As the sign says, they did the crime and they’re doing their time.
But the grocery store business is really tough and they make it on VERY small margins. (more…)

From a press release:
“DC Developer Renowned for Adaptive Reuse Will Transform Historic 10-acre Site Into The City’s Most Innovative and Walkable Neighborhood

In addition to the new name, Roadside Development announced the groundbreaking will be [was] held on December 1, 2018 following Fannie Mae’s November move to its new headquarters.

“In a city full of architectural history, we are building City Ridge at one of the district’s most storied sites,” said Richard Lake, principal of Roadside Development. “The name City Ridge not only reflects the site’s geographical location at one of the highest points in the city, but brings to mind the aesthetic that makes this area of DC so special: It’s where the city meets nature. City Ridge will be a neighborhood that looks to the future while respecting its key architectural elements.”
The name originates from the site’s location on Wisconsin Avenue, a geological ridgeline that separates the two stream valleys of Rock Creek Park to the east and Foundry Branch to the west. (more…)
