“Dear PoPville,

Just a heads up that Five Guys Navy Yard is closed again for “renovations”. We stopped in yesterday and they told us that they would be closed for renovations until baseball season and that they would have milkshakes available for purchase when they reopened.

This same thing happened a couple years back, and the restaurant looked the same when they reopened so I figured it was equipment or something. Stinks for the staff.”

Ed. Note: “Murderers’ Row were the baseball teams of the New York Yankees in the late 1920s, widely considered one of the best teams in history.” Since Declaration will be joining Taylor Gourmet, Chop’t, Chipotle, Roti and RASA and is right near the baseball stadium – I love just the reference. I am not alluding to any actual crimes that have occured in the area.

UPDATE: The press release was way off – Declaration will not be opening “opening until mid-March!”

“JBG SMITH Properties (NYSE: JBGS), a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed use properties in the Washington, DC market, is thrilled to announce that Mission, a popular Mexican bar and eatery, will open this summer in the Capitol Riverfront District in Southeast Washington. Mission will be owned by Fritz Brogan and Reed Landry of the Mission Group, and will build on the group’s successful track record with Mission-Dupont and Hawthorne on U Street. Mission will open in the summer of 2018 in the flagship retail space of JBG SMITH’S new 1221 Van Street multi-family project, located steps from the main entrance to Nationals Park and four blocks from DC United’s new stadium at Audi Field.

Check out the menu here.

From a press release:

“Washington, D.C. chef Haidar Karoum, formerly the executive chef at D.C. favorites Proof, Estadio and Doi Moi, announces January 5 as the opening date of Chloe, his first solo restaurant project. Chloe, a showcase of Karoum’s international culinary perspective, combines two approaches to dining under one roof: a sophisticated, contemporary dinner service and a chef-driven casual carryout lunch that blends the chic with the convenient. Chloe is located in the newly completed Arris building at 1331 4th Street, SE in Washington’s Navy Yard neighborhood. Chloe will debut its dinner service first, followed by lunch and brunch shortly thereafter.

“As I’ve developed Chloe’s menu, I’ve kept it open to all the styles and flavors I’ve worked with over my career,” Karoum said. “My experiences, both personal and professional, are international, and I draw inspiration from personal travels, family traditions and a career spent in some of the best kitchens in D.C. But binding it all together will be a sense of practiced hospitality that anyone who dined at my previous restaurants will recognize.”

Well happy Wednesday indeed!! In scuttlebutt from a tipster who has a 100% accuracy rating (please no jinx, knock wood, knock wood) – the best pizza in D.C. is opening another branch in Navy Yard. I hear the former Il Parco space will become none other than a Wiseguy Pizza. But that’s not all. Those who remember the Parco/Park Tavern space remember there is a nice bar space so expect some serious beer options. In addition to the pizza expect some gelato and coffee options as well. Updates when confirmation comes.
