Because I wouldn't want anyone to go without Korean fried chicken for a second longer than necessary, I will pass along for those who haven't been keeping up that DC's first Bonchon restaurant and bar is indeed opening today, March 30, at 11:30 am, on the southwest corner of Half and K streets, SE, two blocks north of the Navy Yard-Ballpark station's west entrance and three blocks north of Nats Park.
It will be open every day at 11:30 am, staying open until 9:30 pm Sunday-Wednesday and 11 pm Thursday-Saturday, except on Nats game days, when 11 pm will be closing time Sundays through Wednesdays. with midnight the post-Nats closing time Thursdays through Saturdays.
The menu is here, and note the $9 lunch special from 11:30 am to 2 pm Monday through Friday, with a choice of wings, drums, strips, or a combo, plus one side.
If you go, feel free to post your review in the comments.

It's so good. We went to the neighbor preview on Saturday and ate/drank way too much. That place is going to be hell on my waistline.

I have too much content in the hopper right now to do a separate post on this, but Boswell says he's "virtually certain" that DC will be getting the 2018 MLB All-Star game, and that it may be announced on April 6 when the new commish is in town to throw out the first pitch

Pretty exciting to have the All-Star Game here! Hopefully a lot of these projects will be complete in time for the neighborhood to put its best foot forward (and spectators don't get run over by construction vehicles or fall in train trenches!).

No pork buns on the menu? Say it ain't so.

Apparently they are going to have happy hour specials on non-game days. I know this is a hot opening and they think business will come in naturally on game days, but I bet they reverse that and offer a pre-game special. Almost every bar in the neighborhood has pre-game happy hour -- other than Bluejacket.


JD says: (3/30/15 5:31 PM)
Yeah, so.... The links from the Recent Comments box to the actual comments haven't been working in probably forever, but I fixed them just now. To help prevent carpal tunnel in your mouse-scroll-wheel finger.

Friendly, fast service and fantastic food tonight. Everything was spot-on! So glad they are in the neighborhood now.

To follow up from this weekend, there is another construction vehicle at the 3rd and K St lot today and the ground was torn up.


JD says: (3/30/15 8:26 PM)
Let me know when you want to reveal what project you think this is.


202_cyclist says: (3/31/15 10:45 AM)
There was a drilling crew on site today but I don't know, perhaps they got to the site early to tailgate for opening day....

Perhaps instead of making snide responses, you can also inquire about this site. I emailed the DC Housing Authority yesterday to obtain information.


JD says: (3/31/15 10:52 AM)
I know exactly what site it is. It's Square 769N, which I've written about many times.

171 units, 34 of which are slated to be public housing. They have some financing, which I wrote about last year, but no announcement of full financing or approved building permits or the start of construction. I imagine they are doing soil borings.

I was being snide because your breathless BREAKING NEWS (and breathless separate photos sent to me on FB) seemed to be getting all excited that some new development was breaking ground, and I was trying to hint to you that nothing right there is particularly close to getting started.

I went to Bonchon last night. Wow! That's some good chicken! The hot is HOT! No joke. And the seasoned fries... mmm... and draught Kirin Ichiban for 4 bucks for HH. I'm a fan...


JD says: (4/1/15 9:31 AM)
Waiting for the weekend so I can go with Mr. JDLand, but given that we used to drive to Annandale to get Bonchon when it first arrived, the notion of it within walking distance has made us very happy.


JNB says: (4/1/15 2:32 PM)
Went last night. It was awesome!!!

This project is for the interior renovation of the historic buildings 46 and 67 in the Washington Navy Yard. New utilities will be installed to serve the building. NO NEW BUILDING WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AS PART OF THIS PROJECT. A parking lot south of the building will be used to provide stormwater management, as there is no ample open space within the buildings for stormwater BMPs.
