It appears that Due South
is making its push to open in the Lumber Shed
at the Yards within the next few weeks, and lo and behold, the covers are now down off the windows, so of course this morning I had to press my cellphone up against the glass to get some pictures. (Which worked surprisingly well, I might add--thanks, Samsung!)
For those not keeping up, this southern-themed restaurant will be helmed by chef Rusty Holman, he of Bayou
, and in fact owner Bo Blair is shutting down Bayou
during August "in order to focus on the opening of our brand new restaurant, Due South in Navy Yard."
The photo above is a peek in from the Water Street side of the space, below left is the view looking in from the front door, and below right is what you see looking in from the west. Click to enlarge, as always....
And, while we're talking restaurants, Scarlet Oak did indeed open on Saturday evening, and so here's a requisite photo of the exterior, and a quickie of the interior (didn't want to bug the other diners).
The bar already looked like a pretty popular spot to hang out.
