Here’s what we were reading recently about neighborhood news in DC. Have neighborhood thoughts? Leave them in the comments!
Penn Quarter – The Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) is having its monthly meeting at the Calvary Baptist Church tomorrow night between 6:30 pm and 8 pm. A brief on the CityCenter project will be presented. [DNA]
Shaw – One commenter asked about a new storefront at 1314 1/2 9th St NW. We dropped by the store and it intends to be a seasonally oriented grocer sourcing food from local farmers and growers called The Seasonal Pantry. They also run a supper club and plan to open a sandwich shop. We like that 9th St NW continues to march along with interesting shops. Will the under construction Convention Center hotel be the catalyst for that corridor? [Gummy Worm post Comment] & [The Seasonal Pantry] & [SUNdeVICH]

Penn Quarter – Jose Andres’ Cafe Atlantico will become the America Eats Tavern in partnership with the National Archives for a six month period beginning July 4. The name comes from the 1930s WPA (Works Progress Administration) project chronicling America’s foodways. The last day for Cafe Atlantico as the old concept was yesterday, and Minibar continues but will be closed between June 14 and July 2.
