From a press release:

“Husband-wife duo Jena and Matt Carr of Little Red Fox will open Sugar Fox, a neighborhood ice cream shop and bakery, this weekend, in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The shop will offer house-made and customizable treats including ice cream by the scoop, milkshakes, cakes, and cupcakes.

Ed. Note: I guess this finally settles the neighborhood name dispute.

Thanks to Susan and ANC Commissioner 3F06 Monika Nemeth for passing on the news:

“I went to visit Jake’s (5018 Connecticut Ave.) this evening as they are in my SMD and was shocked to learn that they are closing permanently on Sunday. Apparently lease negotiations fell apart. They will be sorely missed.”

Jake’s American Grille opened here in February 2011. Before Jake’s this space was home to Uptown Cathay. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.

From an email:

I’m Eddie Cano – a cozy, family-friendly neighborhood Italian restaurant – will open in the heart of Chevy Chase (at 5014 Connecticut Avenue NW) this week.

About: I’m Eddie Cano (say it three times fast, and one will ultimately stumble upon the phonetic pronunciation of “Americano” in Italian) is the first independent venture from industry veterans Massimo Papetti (Assaggi Osteria, Cafe Milano) and former ThinkFoodGroup executive chef James Gee (Jaleo, China Chilcano).

OK then, looks like we got another neighborhood name battle on our hands. I LIVE FOR THIS. Thanks to Amy for getting the ball rolling by objecting to Chevy Chase (D.C.) as the neighborhood for that new Italian restaurant coming across the street from the original Politics and Prose. So let’s settle this once and for all. hahaha just kidding, but let’s do our best to get a consensus. Now I don’t consider google the arbiter of neighborhood boundaries but I will note that they consider this Chevy Chase. I asked earlier today on twitter and folks seem pretty split between Van Ness and Forest Hills. Originally I was firmly in the Chevy Chase camp but now I’m honestly undecided. What say you?
