Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

With the news that the window coverings had come off of the Osteria Morini space in the Lumber Shed, I went racing down there with hopes of pressing my camera up against all that glass to get some photos of the opening-any-minute-now restaurant from Chef Michael White. Alas, I arrived during training, and so was THWARTED (because I'm way too shy to have just gone ahead and taken the up-close shots with 40 people staring at me).
I did get at least a couple of surveillance-type shots from a respectable distance, which I posted in a new photo gallery you should check out, but here's a preview:
The restaurant is expected to open next week, perhaps the 19th or the 20th, but at this point we know it will open when it opens.
The photo gallery also has a few other fun shots from the other projects currently under construction (residential buildings Twelve12, Park Chelsea and Toll Brothers's River Parc), such as the turret at 4th and M getting quite a makeover:
Plus, the Park Chelsea has gotten new signage, but more interesting is the outlines now forming of the new stretch of I Street that will run between 2nd and New Jersey when it opens (probably not any sooner than spring 2014):
But just go ahead and check out the full gallery.
Also, while they aren't terribly showy just yet, I have built two more of what I call my Expanded Photo Archives for both the Park Chelsea and River Parc projects, to bring together more before-and-afters from a wider/farther array of angles than I usually display on the project pages. (Yep, I'm partying like it's 2007.)

I have to say, it's very nice having you back!


JD says: (11/11/13 11:50 AM)
Thank you! It's nice of the neighborhood to have all these new offerings to lure me back.


G Street says: (11/12/13 9:32 AM)
Just curious - Where is everyone (who is not within walking distance) supposed to park for these new eateries?


jg says: (11/12/13 10:07 AM)
There are at least two parking lots adjacent to the restaurants and relatively inexpensive (maybe $5 flat rate) outside of normal business hours and when the Nats are out of town. Not sure if those will be sufficient, and the lots will eventually be built on, but it's something.

@G:

There are still several lots in the neighborhood, plenty of curbside parking, and this is a five minute walk from the metro station. There are also several Capitol Bikeshare stations in this neighborhood as well.

Note also that Twelve12 lost its tower crane on the north side last week, another sign of progress. Perhaps it will be coming back to the neighborhood when Parcel N gets going?


JD says: (11/12/13 12:10 PM)
And, Bluejacket/Arsenal just tweeted that they are now open for lunch on weekdays at 11 am:

Thanks - Mr. JDLand will be so thrilled!

(Sorry that I've retreated a bit again, but I have some Real Life things going on. I may be kind of in-and-out for awhile yet to come.)
