From a press release:

“Award-winning Chef & Sommelier Danny Lledó is pleased to announce a new Spanish concept to replace the mezzanine and 2nd floor of Slate Wine Bar, the neighborhood restaurant situated in the heart of Glover Park at 2404 Wisconsin Ave, NW, 20007. Xiquet (pronounced “chee-KETT”) will open in August 2019 with an innovative menu inspired by Lledó’s hometown of Denía in the Valencia region of Spain. Slate Wine Bar will close in July to be reimagined as a fresh new wine bar destination with small plates, updated décor, and expanded cocktail & bar selection. Light plaster and natural wood elements combined with warm marble and textured upholstery will create a fresh and approachable dining experience. The name Xiquet comes from “Xiquet de Casa” which translates to “local kid”, a Valencian nickname given to Lledó from his family and friends. Lledó’s new menu will showcase four to six varieties of paella along with suckling pig, steak and seafood cooked-to-order over an open flame, which will be an integral part of the guests’ dining experience.

She was so calm on the phone, asking for guidance w police who offered no help. She finally just said “I don’t know why to do, so I guess let’s just get this on record that it happened and I’m scared for my life. Take that down.” (Paraphrased) (more…)

ANC Rep Jackie Blumenthal shares with the Glover Park listserv:

Starbucks Space is Leased To point chaud cafe & crepes!! Looks like a great addition to the neighborhood.”

These are the same folks who used to have a popular spot in Logan Circle and still have a space downtown. Updates as they get closer to opening in Glover Park.

Thanks to Chris for sending:

“I’m not affiliated with the DC Preservation league but saw the link to the petition. I added some additional context.

Need your help to save the Foundry Branch Trestle Bridge. It’s a really cool historic trolley bridge near our apartment that will hopefully get re-purposed for a multi-use trail. I already signed it and you should too. At the very least it’s a cool video. (more…)
