We heard from Bakers & Baristas (corner of 7th and E St NW) about their free Wednesday evening music series. On to the details:
Join us on Wednesday, May 11th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm for the launch of our Bakers & Baristas music series curated by Thad Wilson Music. Every Wednesday from 7:00pm to 9:00pm Bakers & Baristas features live music from locally-based musicians ranging in style from jazz to folk to neo-soul…any everything in between. Admission on May 11th is free and open to the public.
Bakers & Baristas is a European-style bakery and coffeehouse serving locally roasted coffee and a wide range of freshly baked, scratch made pastries. We will be serving a selection of our pastries at the launch party for your enjoyment! We are both independent and DC-owned with a commitment to serving the community with excellence.
Bakers & Baristas is located at 501 7th Street, NW (corner of 7th & E Sts., NW). We look forward to having you join us on May 11th!
We recently visited the newly remodeled Hotel Monaco (700 F St NW). The guest rooms and event space have all been given a completely new look (Athens Room, pictured above). In addition, you may have heard, neighborhood favorite, Poste, will be closing to allow for a complete re-design of the space and dining concept. We certainly love the terrace for drinks on a summer night and hear they will be making this area even better!
Per the posted signage, the Penn Quarter Austin Grill (750 E St NW) is now closed. We ate there the Sunday before closure and noticed the menus pulled off the exterior signage boards. This restaurant has been in place since the MCI Center era and predates the 2005 boom era of redevelopment.
We finally had the chance to enjoy Chef Eric Zeibolds new restaurant, Kinship (1015 7th St NW). Every singe dish was perfection! We especially recommend the Lobster French Toast, the halibut with asparagus and tarragon (pictured here, tastes like Spring!), the torching of mushroom, the chocolate chip cookie soufflé and salted caramel peanut bar. This will definitely be added to our list of favorite restaurants and re-visited until we’ve been able to eat through the whole menu (especially that whole roasted foie gras for the table!). Thank you, Chef, for bringing us a sophisticated, but accessible, fine dining option for everyday feasting.
