After a few days of "soft" openness, Latin-flavored "green eatery" Chix
is now open
at 1210 Half St., SE, just south of the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station and next door to Buffalo Wild Wings, in the block north of Nats Park, in the ground floor of 55 M Street
I have been out of town, and so apologies for the pre-opening photo accompanying this post, but you can check out Chix's Facebook page
(or this photo
from JDLand reader @JRogers202) to make up for my failure. (And I hope to make up for it myself before too long.)
This is now the third restaurant right near the corner of Half and M SE, joining The Big Stick and the aforementioned BWW. The offering expected to arrive next at that central location is Shake Shack, which is targeting a spring 2017 opening
in the ground floor of the Homewood Suites
on the northeast corner of the intersection.
UPDATE, 24 HOURS LATER: For the historical record.
