@sasq that is a bummer. I heard a tidbit on the retail coming to N Street, but will wait until it is announced.

I knew this was coming. We'll do something at Anchovy Social when the weather is a little more agreeable.

Stopped in at the Thompson bar tonight and was told that Anchovy Social's official opening is the 30th, and the soft opening begins tomorrow (until the 30th) for happy hour daily from 5-8pm. Will try to stop by!

Ventured up to Shaw tonight for the grand opening of Emmy Squared to check it out before our 'hood gets one later this year. Happy to report that it's delicious. link

@AGH I heard from Laura that the 2nd floor will be settling closer to early March, not sure if this is the current information. Also, urban pace is planning an opening day party for all owners(regardless if they have settled or not).


Looks like they have a lot of work to go around the "hood", but we will see.

Will the ovals really be called ovals? A round of beers if Google maps ever says "turn right at the second turn in the traffic oval"

At the ribbon-cutting, in honor of its namesake, I hope the Mayor cranks up a Chuck Brown go-go classic and designates JD to lead everyone in doing the Dougie.

As a cyclist that works down here, I'm most excited for easy access to the east bank of the Anacostia trail. It's lovely biking over there and having the new bridge will give me several great options for crossing from the west bank trail to the east bank trail. The old bridge was awful for cyclists/pedestrians.

I'm pretty psyched about this project. In the first instance, I like the design of the bridge. But primarily, I like how the lower height will result in less dead space on the shoreline. Combined with the traffic circles, I'm hopeful that it at least help ties together southeast and southwest DC on the west side of the river, if not both sides.

I see that the next ANC agenda has a proposal from CM Forgie to make Half St between M and N pedestrian only. I hope that becomes a reality.

@Jscott280 if you mean the old Chix place, I believe JD posted a few months back it was going to be a pizza place.

It looks like there is construction on the addition next to the Sonder short-term apartment rental at 816 Potomac Ave SE. JD-- will this be more short-term rentals? I forgot the details about this.

I had dinner last night at Maialiano as well. The 'no tipping' really takes the pressure off (imo). Service was great from coat check to us walking out the door. Everyone was pleasant, we met one of the managers, Laura,who stated that 75% of the diners were from the area (not me...yet, as I won't move until the eNvy Condos are ready)and that they were very happy to have so many locals, which hopefully means, people will make it one of their neighborhood favorites.The Executive Chef, Rose was very humble and appreciative and went around to speak with guests. The waiter recommended items from the list and was knowledgeable about menu items.

Enjoyed dinner at Maialino Mare last night. An excellent and welcome addition to the neighborhood. Food was excellent, and service was very good, with only a few minor second day kinks that are easily forgiven. The pricing is very reasonable when factoring in the no tipping policy.

I’m waiting for the JDLand-reader rendering of JD creating her rendering of the CSX rendering.

@202 - the more important question is 'has JD created any renderings for the CSX site'?

Cool article. The illustration of the neighborhood even missed a few buildings that were constructed during the decade. It's also easy to see how much more the neighborhood will change in the next few years!

That’s a high-stakes gamble.

Also, ice cold that JD didn’t get an invite.

@CJ1: Peeking in the restaurant windows this past Saturday night, we were approached by a gentleman on his way out who was curious about our snooping. After we explained, he identified himself as the chef and encouraged us to come back on January 8th for the opening.

He walked away without saying it would be on the house, but I’m going to delude myself into thinking he meant to.
