Warm up with Caribbean dishes from the Littles pop-up at EatsPlace. Imagined through the creative and innovative lens of Chef Terry Tomlinson and his wife, Littles brings alive the spirit and flavors of American and Caribbean cuisine in a rich fusion. At Littles, the plates are designed to be shared. This pop-up’s goal is simple: to source the best authentic Caribbean and local ingredients, that can be enjoyed with good friends, conversation and music!
One of Chef Terry’s missions is to make Caribbean food healthful for the body and soul and embrace vegan diners. In addition to classic curry and jerk meats, there will vegan entrees and sides. Entrees include vegan curry shrimp; veggie tails, a version with all the island flavor but no oxtails; and creamy mac’n’cheese.

Thanks to Laura for sending this great news about the former Ethiopian bodega spot across the street from the Petworth metro. The very early word on Yelp for Pho Viet USA is very very good:
“This new place is wonderful! Right off the metro so it’s in a great spot. Lee (who served us) is so friendly and awesome. He treated us to some of the egg roles and they were amazing. The Pho was pretty good too. Yummy jasmine tea! We’ll be eating here again!! Great addition to our neighborhood.”

“Investigators with the Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Investigations Unit are investigating a fatal traffic incident that occurred Monday, October 23, 2017, in the 4800 block of Arkansas Avenue, Northwest.
At approximately 2:30 am, a 2003 Yamaha SR6 motorcycle was traveling northeast of the listed location, when it crossed into the opposite direction. The preliminary investigation suggests that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control. The vehicle then mounted a curb and the operator was ejected, striking a fire hydrant. DC fire and EMS responded and found no signs consistent with life. The operator was pronounced dead on the scene.
The decedent has been identified as 23-year-old Anderson Alberto Flores-Flores, of Northwest, DC.”
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will install transportation safety improvements at Grant Circle. The work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 24, weather permitting, and will take seven to ten days to complete.
DDOT will install a bike lane and safety improvements around the circle, and two travel lanes will be retained. Existing parking capacity at the circle will be maintained. The plans will be installed in accordance with the Notice of Intent released in August 2017.
Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians are advised to stay alert while traveling through these locations and to be observant of DDOT’s personnel.”
In September we lamented that Fish in the Hood had still not reopened after the terrible fire struck back in April. Thanks to all who sent the GoFundMe page that is now live (they are looking to raise $10,000):
“Bill White began Fish in the Neighborhood as a family business in 1996, taking orders out of a home kitchen. In no time, orders were coming in at two or three hundred each weekend. Our family eventually raised enough money to rent the building on 3601 Georgia Avenue.
For 20 years, we’ve been proud to serve great food with support from the loving people in this community. Fish in the Hood is a special place because we offer something for everyone, our customers include doctors, lawyers, politicians and actors, in addition to everyday people who just need a good meal. We love our customers, and we love to give back to the community we share. (more…)
