Washington, DC

240 Massachusetts Ave, NE

From a press release:

“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. Officially opening on Friday, December 6, 2019, it’s a stone’s throw from the Capitol. The drinkery-dinette offers both chic style and old-fashioned charm wrapped in a pretty new package and tied with a bow. Chersevani is pouring her heart into this little jewel box of a place, bringing its own distinctive flair to the Capitol Hill neighborhood. 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

We called non-emergency hotline after about 10 minutes, and of course the car only played the song one more time after that.

Was anyone else in Capitol Hill stirred from their slumber thinking there was a big party outside?

Update: And saw the news today Sam Hunt was arrested for a DUI yesterday. A weird tribute?”

I think the answer is pretty clear – a current day: Read More

Thanks to Valerie for sending: “Buffalo & Bergen’s Capitol Hill location has a sign! Any idea when it’s opening? The sign actually went up about a week ago.”

Almost exactly a year ago we learned that:

Buffalo & Bergen, the Union Market maker of knishes, bagels and cocktails, has a liquor license public hearing notice in the window of the (downstairs) former home of Bagels & Baguettes at 3rd and Mass NE.”

A taste of what to look forward to: Read More
