Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

The WBJ Top Shelf blog is reporting that Justin Ross, who took a gamble on the neighborhood when he opened Justin's Cafe in 2010, will be opening a beer-and-sausage restaurant called "The Big Stick" this summer at 20 M Street, within spitting distance of the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station's Half Street entrance, one block north of Nationals Park.
Quoting: "The Big Stick -- named for baseball bats as well as a reference to Nationals' running president Teddy Roosevelt -- will feature house-made bratwurst and other sausages. The beer list will vary from Justin's domestic, craft-heavy offering to some European selections and mass market American beers, Ross said."
(I had *just* seen a building permit application for a new tenant layout at 20 M about an hour ago, and wondered what it might be. Presto!)
The new restaurant will be 20 M's second retail tenant since it opened in 2007, joining a Wells Fargo branch. And this will be the first food offering (other than the Fairgrounds and food trucks) on Half Street.

Between this and the recent progress at Willie's, my inner carnivore is super excited right now.

Also, FYI, they aim to open by July if all permitting and construction goes smoothly (via @GarberDC).

..."They" being Big Stick. I'd imagine Willie's will be open a lot sooner than that.


JD says: (2/25/14 9:38 AM)
Yeah, I know better than to be anywhere close to that specific about an opening date.

"Yeah, I know better than to be anywhere close to that specific about an opening date."

Especially when it comes to one of Xavier's places (not a knock on you JD).


JES says: (2/25/14 10:09 AM)
Hahaha, valid.

The one exception to that rule around here seemed to be Gordon Biersch. That place flew up. Probably not a coincidence that they're a chain and have a corporate process they follow.

@JES, et al:

Have you eaten from King Ribs at the end of 7th St SW? That is the best barbecue in the area.


JD says: (2/25/14 10:40 AM)
(I was actually referring to the Big Stick opening date, which was listed as June by WBJ and now July by David Garber. That's why I said "summer.")

I happy for Justin. I know some don't love his place so much, but I enjoy it and I'm glad he's been successful. He took a big risk early in the development of Near SE, and I wish him the best on "The Big Stick."

King Ribs is damn good. I hope they can find a spot (kinda similar to the one now) once the Wharf redevelops. So much flavor! Yum!

Anyway - The Big Stick is a horrible name. I totally understand both references too... It's so bad that I'm ALMOST not excited about it opening - almost :)

Hey "lets go get wasted at the Big Stick" LOL - Ok, I'm done
