Due South Dockside is now open on the Capitol Riverfront Boardwalk behind the flagship restaurant.  Along with incredible waterfront views, the venue offers an extensive bar along with a wide variety of classic Due South dishes.

Dockside’s grand opening on Thursday, April 5 was a huge success, attracting dozens of Nationals fans before, during and after the game. Fans without tickets were thrilled to find an oasis in Dockside, serving as a relaxing place to watch the game on the venue’s outdoor television and sound system. Navy Yard locals also stopped by, eager to try their neighborhood’s newest outdoor bar and grill.

On Opening Day, Chef Rusty Holman crafted a delicious menu featuring dishes such as Pulled Pork Nachos, Smokehouse Chili, BBQ Sliders, Hot Dogs, Chili Dogs and the Summer House Sandwich. The restaurant plans to expand upon the menu as the warmer weather approaches this spring and summer.

Dockside’s bar features beers on tap, including Pacifico, Due South Lager and Devil’s Backbone Earned Run Ale. In addition to beer, wine and spirits, Dockside also offers Frosé, the perfect accompaniment to a warm summer day in Navy Yard.

The growing number of fur-parents in Navy Yard will be pleased to know that Dockside is dog-friendly. It will be the perfect spot for two- and four-legged friends to stop and grab drinks after long strolls down the boardwalk this summer.

Dockside will be open at least two hours before and after each Nationals home game throughout April. Beginning May 1, Dockside plans to be open at 11 a.m. daily, weather permitting. Until then, guests can visit https://duesouthdc.com/events/ or follow @duesouthdc on Instagram for the latest hours of operation.

Located less than a quarter-mile from Nats Park, Due South Dockside is the perfect locale for upcoming Nationals pre- and post-game celebrations, along with MLB All Star gatherings, up to 100 people.

Apologies for the delay in posting – and thanks to all who emailed and tweeted. I have no excuse except for the fact that I’m battling a bit of a fruit fly problem that is slowly driving me insane. But never mind that… Richard Sandoval’s Zengo closed last week and the Washington Business Journal reports:

“Circa, the neighborhood brasserie with several other locations around Greater Washington, will open in the Zengo space at 781 Seventh St. NW.”

You can see Circa’s menus here.

And on their website they have a coming soon slot for a Navy Yard location too (99 M Street, SE.)

bridgepark

From a press release:

“As part of a year-long community-led effort, the 11th Street Bridge Park releases an Equitable Development Plan to ensure that nearby residents can benefit from this new civic space. The Bridge Park’s Equitable Development Task Force, formed in the fall of 2014, has worked with community residents, business owners, policy experts and government officials to identify actionable recommendations that the Bridge Park and its partners can take in three areas: workforce development, small business enterprise and housing. The Task Force has developed an Equitable Development Plan comprised of 19 specific recommendations encouraging inclusive development in the neighborhoods surrounding the park.

The Equitable Development Plan is available here to view online and here to download.

With the release of the Equitable Development Plan, Bridge Park staff will partner with experts from the Urban Institute to create measureable and detailed outcomes for each recommendation. Implementation of the recommendations has already begun. In early 2016 for instance, the Bridge Park will provide financial support for a new East of the River Home Buyers Club run by MANNA. The Home Buyers Club offers free high-quality financial literacy training and homebuyer education services with the goal of helping low and moderate income persons acquire quality housing and build assets for families through homeownership.

The Equitable Development Plan supports the unprecedented $100 million investment made by the Mayor of the District of Columbia, Muriel Bowser and the D.C. Council in the Housing Production Trust Fund, an effort to create a more inclusive city. (more…)
