What's Hot: Plans Progress For a New Grocery Store at Friendship Heights Mall | Move-In Ready Townhomes at EYA's Northeast DC Neighborhoods
Neighborhood Eats: Tackle Box to Cleveland Park, Taylor Gourmet to Logan Circle
You may be eyeing a great deal in an up-and-coming neighborhood, or finally committing to your dream house, but you still need to know where you can go grab a bite when you are no longer unpacking, right? Neighborhood Eats, UrbanTurf’s newest feature, will keep tabs on restaurant news and happenings all around the DC area.
Our focus this week is Cleveland Park, where residents have been keeping a close eye on when work might finally begin on a new Giant supermarket and when the neighborhood’s first Chipotle will open. There’s also some recent restaurant news, which we summarize below.
Inside at Tackle Box
Opened: The second location of Tackle Box opened at 3407 Connecticut Avenue NW on June 3rd, bringing with it an expanded menu, but the same nautical-themed decor as the lobster shack’s original location in Georgetown. The new outpost offers the shop’s signature lobster pots, but also features a range of steamed seafood: littleneck, manila and steamer clams, jumbo and shell-on shrimp, and king crab legs. The menu also offers Connecticut-style lobster rolls, served hot, and with less mayo — a departure from the other location’s strict Maine-only policy — and a few non-seafood options (grilled half chicken, grilled three-cheese sandwich).
Closed: Sabores, the Latin-themed restaurant and lounge at Connecticut Avenue and Ordway Street, has closed its doors. The restaurant shut down abruptly in late-May after operating for four years. No word yet on what might replace it, but the highly visible location just across from the Cleveland Park Metro station is sure to be sought after.
New Menu: Chef Logan Cox, formerly of New Heights in neighboring Woodley Park, has begun putting his mark on the significantly-expanded menu at Ripple, located at 3417 Connecticut Avenue NW. Cox started at the restaurant in May, and last week, unveiled a bunch of new menu items, including crispy duck breast and black bass, duck croquettes, and mussel raviolo, as well as seasonal items like spring onion panna cotta, and brandade agnolotti.
Restaurant news outside Cleveland Park:
- More new restaurant news out of Logan Circle this week as Washingtonian’s Best Bites blog reported that the wildly popular Taylor Gourmet will open up a Logan Circle location this fall. The Philadelphia-inspired sandwich shop has signed a lease at 1910 14th Street NW, just north of T Street. It will be the establishment’s fourth location in the DC area.
- Former 2 Amys pizza man Edan MacQuaid is now turning dough over at Local 16 on 16th and U Street. He joins his former colleague, Alex Vallcorba, in the kitchen where they’ll be turning out McQuaid’s signature thin-crust, Neapolitan-style pies, as well as coming up with some new, cool things to roast in the restaurant and bar’s wood-fired oven.
- DC-3 is finally satisfying the thirst of its clientele with a new beer program to go along with its menu of 15 different hot dogs. The 8th Street SE dog stand is starting off slow with its beers, offering just PBR tall boys and McSorley’s Irish Black Lager to start. More are on the way from the owners, though, who know their way around a beer list from one of their other ventures, matchbox.
