Ed. Note: A LOT of folks were confused by this message many received on their phones last night. It was not a shelter in place order (at this time, anyway.) Seems like some officers are confused too.
Not sure if this is happening elsewhere in the city. We have a nanny share between our two children and one other child. Today the Nanny took the kids out for a walk around the neighborhood, like she does everyday for exercise and fresh air. Today police saw her, asked if she was going to Lincoln park, she replied no, that she was just walking around and making sure they avoid people. Police told her she can’t do that, she is not allowed to leave the house and she must go home. Read More

From an email:
“Slice Joint is a joint venture between Neighborhood Restaurant Group (The Roost 1401 Pennsylvania Ave, SE) and Rachael Marie, formerly of Roberta’s. The first Slice Joint location opened at The Market Line food hall on the Lower East Side in November 2019 (the same food hall where NRG’s craft beer bar The Grand Delancey sits). Slice Joint’s menu features a tight selection of approachable, New York and Grandma-style pizzas (whole & by-the-slice) that rely on only fresh, seasonal and high-quality ingredients – including Rachae’s house cheese blend. Slice Joint’s DC location will mirror the current offerings, with some seasonal updates. Read More

“Brother-and-sister owners Ken and Aki Ballogdajan will open their new concept AKO by KENAKI at The Roost early 2020. Chef Ken and his sister Aki opened their first restaurant, KENAKI Sushi Counter, in Gaithersburg last year. While Ken touts a 25-year career in the industry (which includes time spent at Raku, VOLT, and with Chef Ryan Trevino in San Juan, PR), his sister Aki left her career in software in 2018 to open KENAKI as its GM. Though this will be the second concept for the Ballogdajans, the siblings are third-generation restaurant owners and got their start in the industry as teens. Their sushi counter at The Roost is named for their late mother, Ako (her nickname). Read More
