The Ground Floor


Karma by Erwin Gomez, a new beauty salon, has opened at 1104 24th St, NW in the West End.  Services offered include his signature brow shaping plus makeup, hair, mani-pedi's, massage, and microdermabrasion.  (Daily Candy)

Tanger Outlet Center at National Harbor, an 80 store, 350,000 square foot shopping mall, is coming to National Harbor.

The Uptown Tap House opened last night in Cleveland Park.  The owners of McFaddens converted the old Four Fields space (previously the 4Ps) into a more upscale version of its college-serving establishment, as neighbors fretted that Cleveland Park would get rowdy.

Pizzeria Uno, the Chicago pizza chain, has closed its Georgetown location at 3200 M St, NW after 32 years in business.

The new restaurant at 3415 11th St, NW from the folks behind Tryst, the Diner and Open City finally has a name:  The Coupe.  The Coupe will offer coffee and pastries a la Tryst, breakfast all day like the Diner and comfort food similar to Open City.  Word on the street is that they'll be open in several weeks.  (Eater)

Domku Cafe, the Slavic/Scandinavian restaurant located in Petworth at 821 Upshur St, NW, is beginning a new project: the Start-Up Kitchen.  Every Monday from 9/17/12 to 10/8/12, a guest chef will be featured and will serve their own culinary dishes.  Domku owner Kera Carpenter dreamed up the idea to support start-up chefs as they discover what its like to run their own restaurant.

The concern in Cleveland Park was that McFadden's would bring its sorry record of under-age drinking violations, over-the-top 'guest bartender' contests and bar-bus business model to a an upscale restaurant strip in a family neighborhood. The 4Ps was a good neighbor for years. Let's hope that McFaddens changes its Foggy Botton business practices.
