From a description of an early preview dinner:
“Chef Johnny Spero began his culinary career at the age of 16 in Baltimore County. For the past 10 years he has been living and working in Washington D.C., most recently during his tenure as Head Chef at Jose Andres’ Minibar the restaurant earned a perfect four-star review from The Washington Post.
Currently Johnny is building his new restaurant in Georgetown called Reverie. It will offer an a la carte menu as well as a 6 course tasting menu. Reverie is inspired by Spero’s travels and working abroad, offering a casual fine dining experience in an approachable and fun atmosphere.”

My husband and I visited Key Bridge Boathouse in Georgetown on Sunday Oct 22, 2017 and were on the river kayaking from 2:50pm-3:50pm. We had locked up our bikes on the bike racks in front of the boathouse and came back to find them missing.
I was immediately approached by a homeless man claiming he had witnessed our bikes being stolen and could help us get them back. He knew exactly what these two men looked like and knew they would be back for more bikes. He said the thieves cut our lock and escaped in opposite directions with our bikes (one down the Capital Crescent Trail and the other towards Georgetown Waterfront.) I was skeptical, thinking this man may have been involved.
Meanwhile, my husband searched along the Potomac River side of the Capital Crescent Trail for stashed bikes as I called the police to file a report and notified the Boathouse front desk staff. Neither the police or staff seemed surprised by this incident. (more…)
