Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Short and sweet, just in time for dessert:
* RASA ALMOST HERE: According to City Paper, Rasa Indian Grill will be opening its doors in the ground floor of F1rst on Wednesday, Dec. 6. (I'm not surprised that I don't have a recent shot of the Rasa front, but I can't believe I don't have a decent NOT-recent shot of it, either. Argh.) The City Paper piece has a lot of background on the restaurant's format and background. And on Instagram Rasa says that they will be opening from 12-2 on Tuesday Dec. 5 to support DC Central Kitchen.
* OATH PIZZA: The sight of workers in the retail space next to Bethesda Bagels in the ground floor of Insignia on M has been noticed; but what I and my normally deep-digging commenters missed was the news back in October that Boston-based Oath Pizza would be coming to that address in early 2018--and boxes inside the space do indeed say "Oath Pizza" on them. A Merrifield/Mosaic location opened about a month ago, and WTOP says that not only does Oath bill itself as the "only existing certified-humane pizza restaurant in the country," it "has what it calls a trade secret thin crust, that’s hand-stretched, grilled and seared in avocado oil."

FromTheTurret was on the ball in mentioning Oath Craft back on October 17: link

I work at 80 M and within the very near future, I will be within one block of Bethesda Bagels, Oath Craft Pizza, Gordon Biersch, Chopt, Taylor Gourmet, Rasa, Chipotle, Roti, Cava, Shake Shack, and good old Justin's Cafe. Might be forgetting something too. A slight step up from the options when I started working there in 2012...


JD says: (11/30/17 11:42 PM)
Ah! Good catch. Apologies to FromTheTurret!

I am hoping that my brain returns to at least 50% power in 2018. Though with one more detour - looks like I'm having arthroscopic hip surgery to start the year off peachily.



sameter says: (12/1/17 7:06 AM)
get well JD


RMP says: (12/1/17 9:01 AM)
I guess Oath Pizza will beat All Purpose at this rate?

The Chloe build-out seems to be taking forever. If you peak in the window kinda-sorta looks like a restaurant but it still seems like it has a ways to go.


jdc says: (12/1/17 9:03 AM)
Oath Pizza sounds perfect for office workers looking to grab and go.


JD says: (12/1/17 9:04 AM)
I'm such a techie that I keep thinking it's OAuth Pizza.


NavyYardGuy says: (12/1/17 11:43 AM)
Get well JD!

SN: Maybe consider doing a holiday happy hour for all the JD Landers and JD Land! Might be a cool thing to end 2017 with.


JD says: (12/1/17 11:45 AM)
Thanks.

Perhaps in the spring we can do a happy hour. December is not going to be a month where I'm going to feel like doing much celebrating, I'm afraid.


202_cyclist says: (12/1/17 11:56 AM)
JD-- I hope you get well and have a quick and complete recovery.

@NavyYardGuy-- I concur about a happy hour.


Snacks says: (12/1/17 12:03 PM)
Hope the surgery and recovery is painless and quick.

Looking forward to trying Oath Pizza. Also All Purpose. Actually any pizza.


JD says: (12/2/17 3:30 PM)
People were asking recently in other threads--1221 Van is now leasing. (I was going to write a post about it, but they couldn't be bothered to reply to my Twitter question about whether move-ins are actually starting as well, so....)


202_cyclist says: (12/4/17 11:09 AM)
If any of you were planning on bidding on 49 L Street, SE, you'll need at least $15.2M

202_cyclist says: (12/4/17 5:39 PM)
@SWag--- I guess this will be named Two Mountain North.


jdc says: (12/5/17 8:20 AM)
@202 - it's up to 16 million now. Did you bid? ;)


202_cyclist says: (12/5/17 9:29 AM)
It looks like there are a couple of children’s Christmas books on one of the benches next to the Yards Park bridge. If your child lost them, you might want to claim them befor it rains today, so nobody has a sad day.


202_cyclist says: (12/5/17 10:07 AM)
@jdc— JD and I are in a heated bidding war.


JD says: (12/5/17 10:13 AM)
Indeed.

kalicki says: (12/5/17 10:24 AM)
Looked like there were workers possibly training in the Chipotle this morning, so guessing that might be open in a few days as well.


Ampersand says: (12/5/17 12:48 PM)
Just ate at Rasa. The workers were extremely friendly and the food was delicious. Would've liked more sauce, but it'll get ironed out. I look forward to being a frequent customer!


jdc says: (12/5/17 1:16 PM)
SO it has opened earlier?
