I live in an building above a bar/ restaurant. I Have talked to my leasing office, ABRA, the cops and the bar itself, all more than once, about the amount of noise that comes through my floor (mostly on weekends but occasionally weekdays). There has been no solution it seems because that problem still persists and it is so loud I can’t sleep at all. (more…)

“In December Whaley’s will undergo a seasonal transformation and become FUYU for the winter months, offering Chef Daniel Perron’s take on shabu shabu.
Shabu Shabu is literally a centerpiece of Japanese cuisine. Each table will feature a hot-pot of simmering broth – house-crafted dashi or red miso – so diners can create their own meal family-style. Given Whaley’s focus on pristine seafood, the FUYU menu will showcase both fish and shellfish, along with premium meats. Examples include: (more…)
Navy Yard is simply drowning in goodness.
From a press release:
“Chef Michael Lee Rafidi, one of Washington, D.C.’s most promising young culinary talents, will open his first solo restaurant in summer 2019 in the city’s burgeoning Navy Yard neighborhood. Albi, Arabic for “my heart,” will offer a fresh expression of Modern American cooking inspired by Rafidi’s Middle Eastern heritage and informed by Mid-Atlantic ingredients. Located on the corner of 4th and Tingey Streets in Southeast D.C.’s The Yards development, the 4,800-square-foot space also encompasses a second location of Maxwell Park, Brent Kroll’s adventurous wine bar run in partnership with top sommeliers Niki Lang and Daniel Runnerstrom. Together, Rafidi and Kroll will bring to D.C. a dual-concept experience that celebrates regional farms, world-class wines and the diversity of Levantine food and culture.
“My grandfather was a chef in D.C. for decades and honored his Palestinian ancestry through his food. Those early memories I have with him in his kitchen helped shape who I am as a chef,” Rafidi said. “When I decided to open my own restaurant, it seemed natural to return to my roots and cook the food I grew up eating, but from the perspective of where my travels, training and inspiration have taken me through my career.”
