I am saddened to report that driving by the former Neams grocery and Marvelous Market in Georgetown (corner of Wisconsin and P across from Thomas Sweet), I saw that this property is becoming a Chase bank.
This is such sad news as this property, though long vacant has so much potential including parking and outdoor seating space. Do people even go to banks anymore? This seems like such a waste of a neighborhood gem.” (more…)
Hmm. Anyone check out the recently opened Mono Diner?

From an email:
“Tonight, The Tavern by sweetgreen, the first-ever market from the salad chain focusing on all things fresh and local, will launch its sweetflow walk-up window garden out of its storefront off of M Street in Georgetown.

Jen captures this bizarre scene:
“A bit of excitement outside Paisano’s in Georgetown tonight. Delivery driver somehow gunned it through the brick wall and onto the grass outside the Boys and Girls Club at Jelleff Rec Center. Nobody was hurt but we felt badly for the young guy inside the pizza place who had lent the driver his truck.”

From a press release:
“Bandoola Bowl, a Southeast Asian salad shop from 25-year restaurant industry veteran Aung Myint, announces an April 23 opening date at 1069 Wisconsin Avenue NW in Georgetown. The 2000-square-foot, two-story fast-casual concept explores Burmese cuisine, which often carries the scents and flavors of neighboring China, Thailand, and Vietnam, through approachable, ingredient-packed salads.
