Thanks to Kari for sending: “I live down the street from Nina May and have seen my fair share of restaurants open and close (I am looking at you “The Bird ” and “Frenchy’s Naturel“) any way, looks like Nina May is now open for coffee, breakfast and lunch and I really want them to succeed. It is a tough corner with not too much foot traffic.”
From a press release:
“After a successful launch in the Fall, Shaw’s New American restaurant Nina May has introduced a daytime café within the restaurant. Open Monday – Friday, from 7 am – 2 pm, the café’s menu reflects the team’s continued dedication to locally sourced and sustainable food ingredients. Read More

“No more Subway in the Eastern Market area! I tried to open the door to head in for my morning Oven Roasted Chicken on wheat and then saw the sign. It’s a loss for me. I loved the staff here. One employee’s wife even made my whole family traditional Tanzanian garments for Christmas one year.”

From an email:
“Restaurateur Asad Sheikh is expanding his latest venture Butter Chicken Company, a fast casual concept, to the H Street NE corridor. Located at 500 H Street NE, this outpost solely dedicated to India’s iconic dish Butter Chicken, opens Tuesday, February 18th. Similar to the downtown DC location, only 300 servings are prepared per day, however the H Street NE restaurant will be open all day long, with 100 servings prepared for lunch and another 200 for dinner. Sheikh previously opened award winning restaurants in Northern Virginia (Curry Mantra London Curry House and 1947), before deciding to focus on Washington, DC. Sheikh opened two locations of Bombay Street Food in Columbia Heights and Capitol Hill in 2019, inspired by the bright and vibrant street food flavors he grew up eating in Bombay. He debuted the original Butter Chicken Company this past fall in downtown DC. Read More
