I have to admit that I’m leaning awesome. But in my defense, I have been drinking. What’s the verdict?
This is the former OYA (briefly BOE) space. Back in September we learned they were shooting for a “Late 2018” opening. A peek inside revealed a lot more work needs to be done but we’ll update when they get a firm date.
Boqueria opened their first D.C. location in Dupont Circle back in 2012.
In the meantime about those signs?
You can see their menus here.
More signs after the jump. (more…)
The Big Bus could not have been more blocking the cycle lane, on a busy stretch of street outside Madam Tussauds (10th and F Street, NW). The bus was most definitely parked. The driver feet up on the steering wheel talking to the tour-hawker seen to the right of picture. (more…)

ZIP YOUR BAGS – Pick Pocketed at Dinner at Taco Bamba 777 Eye Street NW
Last night I met a friend at Taco Bamba at 6:15pm, by 730ish I could not find my wallet to pay for my dinner, and a subsequent check of my accounts showed all my credit cards purchased Metrocards at the Mount Vernon Metro stop around 6:28pm at the values of $103 and $104.
My bag was a tote with no zipper – warning to all ladies – ONLY use a bag that you can zip and zip it closed in public.
DC Police took the report and want to claim it as as “lost property” since I did not see someone take it despite knowing I had my wallet moments earlier and went from work a few blocks away. (more…)

My team at Fiola make me proud. They perform to the highest level of professionalism and passion for our craft. On Monday night, an incident occurred that is not part of a normal dinner service. It required clearing a restaurant of protesters disguised as patrons at the bar and escorting Senator Ted Cruz and his wife through a side passage, while not skipping a beat with the other dinner guests who had joined us for a meal.
