My dad always says that "almost only counts in horseshoes," but I won't let that deter me from a few Almost Tidbits:
* SCARLET OAK, ALMOST: With this tweet earlier today, Scarlet Oak let it be known that it is close to opening, with a soft opening expected "next weekend" and a "grand opening soon to follow." The modern American restaurant and bar on the northwest corner of New Jersey and K comes from the same folks who brought you Southern Hospitality in Adams Morgan.
* DUE SOUTH, ALMOST: HillNow quotes a Forest City prediction that Bo Blair's Due South southern restaurant will "likely" open in the Lumber Shed in August. We Shall See.
* BDUBS CONSTRUCTION, ALMOST: A little birdie tells me that the Buffalo Wild Wings folks have said that the hope is to have its new Half Street location open by October (let's see, what else happens in October?), and that construction should start within the next few weeks.
* ANOTHER COFFEE SHOP, ALMOST: The official Yards twitter account lamented last week's loss of Buzz Bakery, but then added, "Fear not coffee aficiandos! We have a new coffee shop in the works." My understanding is that an announcement should be made in the coming weeks (along with perhaps some other retail announcements).

I'm looking forward to Scarlet Oak. Any update on when construction for the marina in front of the Yards Park will begin? We listened to the Friday concert from the might Anacostia this past week rather than on terra firma and it was very enjoyable.


JD says: (7/22/15 8:28 AM)
No update on the marina.

As for Due South, I found this, which I probably wasn't supposed to just yet: link

Menu and everything!


conngs0 says: (7/22/15 9:37 AM)
That's a pretty awesome-looking menu for Due South! If they execute well, the other spots in the immediate vicinity may have to step up their game a bit.


Edna says: (7/22/15 10:05 AM)
What happens in October? Not baseball at Nats Park! Let's Go Bucs!


JES says: (7/22/15 11:08 AM)
I want to destroy everything on that menu.

I wonder what the brunch offerings will be.


screaminglemur says: (7/23/15 4:00 PM)
Edna, I don't know who you are but we should hang out. Let's go Buccos!


JD says: (7/27/15 11:47 AM)
Scarlet Oak menu now posted: link


conngs0 says: (7/27/15 3:20 PM)
Looks good to me! Hopefully it's well-executed. Looking forward to hanging out on that patio once the nearby construction quiets down!


BillP says: (7/28/15 10:09 AM)
Did Kruba Thai close? Somebody mentioned that on the CQ email list but I haven't seen anything else about it and their website is unchanged.

Due South must have hidden the menu, nothing appears at JD's link anymore beside "coming soon." Screen shots anyone?

The Scarlet Oak menu is extremely promising; however, one early gripe is that a southern inspired restaurant must have more than one bourbon-based specialty cocktail!


JD says: (7/28/15 11:42 AM)
I just checked with Forest City, and they say that Kruba is open for lunch right now, and appears to be business as usual.


JES says: (7/28/15 1:27 PM)
Kruba better not close; I love the sushi at that place.


BillP says: (7/28/15 10:53 PM)
Thanks JD. Glad to hear re Kruba, apparently there was an error on google maps, stupid interwebs!


JD says: (7/29/15 2:48 PM)
And for another piece of Yards/Retail news, Pacers Running says it will be opening in August at the Boilermaker Shops. (I realized a few days ago I had totally forgotten about them!)


JT says: (7/29/15 3:44 PM)
The Scarlet Oak menu lost me at "Margarita" as opposed to "Margherita" pizza.

I'll try to get over it since the rest looks pretty good...


adamdonovan says: (7/31/15 3:38 PM)
Please oh please let the new coffee shop be Peregrine!
