My family and I came across Addis Paris Cafe last weekend during their soft opening. They’ve taken over the spot next to Sun Cinema where the Lia Cafe used to be.
We stopped for some Ethiopian food and nutella crepes – both were great. Lovely lady running the place.

Third Eye Tavern opened in the old Salty Dog space (Black Fox Lounge before them) back in April 2017.

Thanks to Amanda for sending:
“A few weeks ago you posted about the Hilltop on Sherman Avenue becoming Napoli Pasta Bar. This week, I noticed that they were open so I tried it out. I was really impressed! The owner previously worked at Café Milano and Lupo Verde and you can tell that he knows his pasta! The pasta, charcuterie and cocktails were delicious and the staff was friendly without being pushy or intrusive. I never went to the Hilltop so I don’t know how many changes were made, but the inside is beautifully decorated. There is a table made out of a Vespa scooter with a working headlight, which is pretty sweet. The waiter said that they have a happy hour discount on their beer and wine. Oh, and there is free bread and olive oil! I am a longtime resident of Sherman Avenue and I am excited (and a little surprised) to see a restaurant like this pop up on our street, so bring your friends, bring your kids and check it out!”

Thanks to a reader for passing along this nice little tidbit from a DC Bocce League registration email:
“**Vinoteca has plans to close in March to completely renovate the interior restaurant. Included in the plans is the installation of a retractable glass roof over the outdoor patio. This roof will ensure weather will no longer be an issue during games. Once Vinoteca finalizes their construction timeline, we will open registration.”
Vinoteca opened back in 2007. Updates as more is known on the renovation plans.
