“Whether you’re hunting down a hot spot for breakfast, lunch, or snacks, or a place to stop by for a cocktail, consider the newest location of Buffalo & Bergen from Gina Chersevani, the mixtress maven of Washington, DC.

The initial limited opening hours will include breakfast, lunch, and all-day cocktail service from 8AM-3PM. In the coming weeks, full dinner and evening cocktail service will follow. Read More

Earlier this week we broke the news that the Bed Bath & Beyond/World Market would be closing in Chinatown. Ed. Note: One reader hears they could remain open until April.

Tim sends the cryptic message: “in NE last night.” You have been warned. The local liquor stores should probably be alerted too.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
