Penn Quarter – Meat(Balls) is out and Taylor Gourmet sub sandwich shop is in at 624 E St NW. [Washington CityPaper]
Penn Quarter – Red Apron Butchery going in at 709 D St NW will be both a butchery and a restaurant. This is similar to the Blacksalt idea in Palisades which is both a fishmonger and a restaurant (and a darn good one too!) [Prince of Petworth]
Penn Quarter – More Minibar (855 E St NW) clips including interior renderings. It will have a fireplace which we think is kinda’ cool. The price…that’s another story. [Eater DC – Sneak Preview] & [Eater DC – 5 Changes to Minibar]
Penn Quarter – A new business will occupy one of the kiosks in Gallery Place alley (7th and G St NW) offering pizza by the slice. Hope it doesn’t stay open all hours or it will become our area’s version of Adams Morgan’s Jumbo Slice. [Prince of Petworth]
Mount Vernon Triangle – Speaking of pizza, Wiseguys New York Pizza will be opening at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW in the Mass Court building at 4th St, H St, and Massachusetts Ave NW. This space has been vacant as long as we can remember so it’s nice to see it get filled. It used to be there was nowhere to get pizza by the slice. Wiseguys makes three places to get slices…may the best pizza win! [The Triangle]
