Washington Business Journal has the scoop
on some big news for the block just north of Nats Park, which is that the team behind DC restaurants Succotash
and Mi Vida
are planning to open The Commons, a 300-seat, 9,000-square-foot, two-story restaurant "that will look into the stadium from its second floor" at JBG Smith's under-construction West Half
And, not only will it have lunch and dinner menus with "a sort of contemporary, upscale diner feel," but it is apparently intending to have a bakery and breakfast operation, Mah-Ze-Dahr at The Commons, from the owners of the New York bakery
The article says that The Commons is aiming for a late 2019 or early 2020 opening.
This is the first retail offering announced for West Half
, which will have over 65,000 square feet of retail on two floors.
