The Ground Floor


Luke's Lobsters: Though rumor has it that the popular New York restaurant is headed to 622 I Street N.W., but Ben Conniff of Luke's Lobsters said they're not true. "No one from D.C. had confirmed with us that we had even decided on a location or signed a lease. We're still looking for spaces. When we find one, we'll let you know."

El Centro D.F.: Zengo's Richard Sandoval and Kaz Okochi, the partners behind Masa 14, will offer their second fusion dining concept as a casual tequileria and taco joint with a sit-down restaurant, bar and lounge that's set to open in May.

Fiola - According to chef F
abio Trabocchi's wife Maria, the restaurant will soft open this Friday, with a 10% discount for guests as staff continues to fine-tune its training. The decor, she says, is Italian villa and the food is rustic, "like Fabio cooks at home," she said. "If you're looking for Maestro, you won't find it here."

Public tenley: The sibling to the Dupont Circle location has opened in the long deserted building next to the Dancing Crab. The sports bar-wing & burger venue has two levels and upper and lower patio spaces, with a hipster design unique to Tenley.

Bistro 18: The coffee house, bistro, bar and art gallery is slated to open Monday. With late night hours until 1 or 2 A.M. daily, the restaurant will also serve brunch on weekends.

Jack Rose: Jack Rose, named for the drink (or the guitarist) this long awaited sibling to Bourbon is showing off its facade sans plywood now that the copper and window work is finished. The newest Bill Thomas restaurant will open in May.

Click on the map, it will show you the addresses (its an insider's trick).

Yes, the map is a nice touch and is useful. Nevertheless, I second the individual who posted about providing addresses in the text. As they say in real estate -- location, location, location. You wouldn't write about new development and neglect to note its location, would you?

i think the map has been a nice touch ( once i learned it's use) , but it's clearly not an effective visual communication tool.

just click the map if you want to know where it is, and relax

Please provide addresses in the future. I read this on my phone and it takes forever for maps to load. And, yes, I am already relaxed.
