I’ve been getting tons of inquiries asking for updates on the coming Columbia Heights Wawa. I’m told that building permits have finally been issued and “hard construction” begins after the holidays. If all goes according to plan they should be open by May 1st.

And thanks to Eric Kmetz for passing on word about the Georgetown Wawa: (more…)

Thanks to Rachel for sending. Patagonia is currently located at 1048 Wisconsin Ave, NW:

Anyone know what’s going to happen to that cool location?

Thanks to all who emailed about the Georgetown Wawa coming soon signage after seeing this morning’s post on the one coming to Adams Morgan. Georgetown looks to be opening any day now. The takeover is real. Wawa opened their first D.C. location on 19th Street way back on December 14th 2017. Blessed be his name. Stay tuned for an exact opening date as soon as we know it.

Ed. Note: Progress seems to be slow going for the Columbia Heights Wawa but updates when we learn more about the timing their too.

3401 Water Street, NW. “The Popal Group will replace Malmaison with sausage and beer hall The Berliner this November”

From a press release:

“This November, The Berliner (3401 Water Street NW), a new scratch-made wurst and beer garden opens near the Georgetown waterfront in the space formerly occupied by neighborhood mainstay Malmaison. The Berliner is the latest concept from D.C.-based The Popal Group, the family-run restaurant group behind Cafe Bonaparte, Lapis Bistro (a recent Bib Gourmand honoree), Lapop, and the former Napoleon Bistro.

Inspired by family ties and modern Berlin comfort food, the menu includes Bavarian classics such as bratwurst, schnitzel and homemade pretzels with beer cheese, in addition to modern fare such as doner kebabs and falafel. The Berliner will also feature 24 beers on tap with a variety of domestic, international and seasonal brews ranging from larger producers to to smaller German breweries rarely found on U.S. menus.

God damn it.

Thanks, I think, to a reader for sending from “Georgetown. By the time I got my phone out, this little guy had moved off the food. Our area restaurants need to do better. The door to this case was left wide open, so he/she was able to just curry right in.”
