Anna writes about the Capitol Hill Sweetgreen on Penn Ave:
“WHY IS IT STILL CLOSED
Cramping my style. Do you know anything? or perhaps a reader does?”
Ed. Note: I’ve written Sweetgreen for an update but haven’t heard back from them. In possible positive news I did hear that the W Street location has reopened.
624 E Street, NW
As for the Sweetgreen coming to the former Taylor Gourmet in Penn Quarter – it’s still not open yet either.
7th and E Street, NW
Bakers & Baristas opened here back in January 2015. A liquor license placard for Bakers & Barristas posted out front now says:

Natalia reports around 10:15am:
“Knocked out at least two windows. Someone affiliated with the restaurant said a truck was driving on the sidewalk and ran into the restaurant.”
Ed. Note: Earlier this morning there was an incident outside Ford’s theater but that was not a truck. I don’t believe the two are related but updates if that changes.

Some ‘Breaking’ news from Penn Commons last night:

Scotts DC opened up in the former Co Co Sala space in November 2018.
Thanks to Mary for sending word on Scotts closure: “Any idea what happened and when? All signage is gone. Doors were locked.”
CityPaper reported they closed July 1st.
We’ll always have “It is NOT a lifestyle choice.”

And apparently the Johnston & Murphy has closed…
Thanks to HH and Jason for sending:
“Looks like a Bluestone Lane is opening up on 13th and G NW.”

From a press release:
“Today, Matchbox announces a July 3 opening for its newest location, a 4,360-square-foot space at 750 E Street NW in Washington, D.C. The homegrown chain recently closed its original Chinatown restaurant at 713 H Street NW to welcome the Penn Quarter arrival, which is located just three blocks away and boasts a 28-seat sidewalk patio in addition to 125 seats indoors. Fueled by its investment funding from Thompson Hospitality, Matchbox will continue brand-wide growth in the region with stores slated to open in Bethesda, Md. later this summer and in Reston, Va. in early 2020.

Whoa, another end of an era. This original Matchbox opened back in 2003. But fear not, Matchbox will be opening a new spot a few blocks away in Penn Quarter soon. Ed. Note: Last week we also learned about a new Matchbox coming to Cathedral Heights. Read More
