Well this is a mysterious one. All we know is that it’s a cocktail bar. It’s located in the lower level and looks very promising:
Anyone happen to stop by Saturday?
Updates when more is known.
Next door to Rito Loco:
734 7th St NW at H Street, NW
Thanks to Craig (and Barred in DC who reminds us a Capital One Cafe is coming.) for the massive news. Fuddruckers closed in Dupont back in 2010 (that location is now a Shake Shack.) Chinatown’s retail shakeup continues with the recent closure of RFD and rumors of Hooters closing soon too but they still seem open. Anyway, pour one out for Fuddruckers – they had a helluva run.

How in the world did I miss this?!? MVP’s website says:
“A truly great sports bar must be awash in TVs, offer an inordinate selection of beers, whiskeys, tequilas and excel at something good, saucy and routinely on special, and must end up all over dress shirts.
MVP’s our one-size-fits-all Sports Bar concept, with more than 28 HDTVs, two video wall, dozens of beers, and huge selection of Whiskey’s and Tequilas (did we say HUGE?). (more…)

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.”

Ed. Note: This news follows Mr. Chen’s Organic Chinese opening in the former Nam Viet space a few doors down.
Thanks to Jenna for sending this desperately needed good dining news for Cleveland Park. There was much consternation after learning Ripple had closed after 7 years in Cleveland Park.
Cucina Al Volo opened in the former Pasta Mia space in Adams Morgan back in August of 2016. The early word on Cucina Al Volo has been very good. So let’s mark this a score for Cleveland Park.
Cucina Al Volo’s website says:
“We know that simple ingredients can lead to something extraordinary. Whether you’re stopping in for a quick lunch and dinner or taking home our traditional Italian pasta to share at your own table, Al Volo has you covered. Our authentic Italian pasta recipes have been delighting diners with our Bronze-cut pasta making method. After using wholesome organic ingredients, our pasta is cut intentionally rough to allow savory Italian sauces to stick all the better to your pillowy Ravioli and your twisty Fusilli Bucati. Your nonna would be so proud.”

Stay tuned for an opening date.
