Making pop tarts at Ted’s Bulletin.
In this week’s Neighborhood Eats, Ted’s Bulletin nears its 14th Street opening and an Old Fashioned contest comes to Bourbon Steak.
Open: Robert Wiedmaier’s Mussel Bar & Grille opened its third location at 800 N. Glebe Road in Arlington (map). The menu includes the eponymous mussels and grilled items, as well as brick-oven pizzas. Like Wiedmaier’s other restaurants, it features an extensive selection of Belgian and craft beers with more than 100 to choose from.
A second location of southern Indian restaurant Malgudi has replaced Cafe Luna at 1633 P Street NW (map), according to Washington City Paper. The ownership, which also owns Heritage India, decided that the new menu of southern Indian specialities would better serve its vegetarian and vegan customers.
Opening Soon: Ted’s Bulletin is set to open its second location on August 19th at 1818 14th Street NW (map). In addition to its popular homemade pop tarts and boozy milkshakes, the new location has joined the donut bandwagon with yeast and cake donuts. The new branch also features counter service, Monday pasta nights, and Tuesday burger basket specials.

Opening Eventually: PoPville spotted a liquor license for GCDC at 1730 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (map). The license says that the restaurant will serve high-end grilled cheese sandwiches, tater tots, soup and salad.
Closed Temporarily: The recently opened Diego at 2100 14th Street NW (map) has closed temporarily, according to Washington City Paper, in order to retool its menu and service. The owners are in negotiations with a “very well-known chef” to join the staff, and they expect it will be several weeks before all the necessary adjustments are made.
Events: Summertime is for ice cream, so Brightest Young Things is hosting Cookies and (ice) cream at Penn Social on August 24. You’ll be able to enjoy unlimited samples of cookies and ice cream from over 15 local vendors and restaurants, including Whisked!, Dolci Gelato, Uncle Chip’s, and Nice Cream Factory. Also enjoy cocktails or enter in an ice cream sandwich eating or cookie baking contest. Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 the day of the event.
If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to make your reservations for DC Restaurant Week. Running from August 19-25, participating restaurants are offering three-course meals for $20.13 for lunch and $35.13 for dinner.
The Old Fashioned cocktail is a classic, but basic drink where a bartender really shows his or her mixing chops. Bourbon Steak will be hosting an “Old Fashioned Showdown” on August 25, pitting six local bartenders against each other to make the best version. Attendees will be able to sample all the boozy results and vote for their favorite, as well as enjoy oysters and a variety of bites made with bison, such as hot dogs and sliders made by Bourbon Steak chef John Critchley. Tickets are $70.
