UrbanTurf has evolved its weekly Neighborhood Eats column into Top 5 Bites, in which food and drink contributor Jamie Liu highlights the most important food stories of the week.
Chef Ron Tanaka and General Manager Sherman Outhuok are opening their modern American restaurant Thally (pronounced tally) on or around Tuesday, August 27 at 1316 9th Street NW. It features a simple menu of light starters including a variety of seasonal salads, as well as entrees with less common cuts of meat like pork t-bone and delmonico steaks. Along with 10 draft beers, there will be two ciders, a selection of ciders by the bottle, 24 wines by the bottle, and a variety of house made sodas.
A Wale of an Opening
Next week Chef Tom Power of the much-lauded Corduroy is set to open casual spot Baby Wale next door at 1124 9th Street NW, according to Eater. Power envisions Baby Wale as a bar with good food and wine rather than a proper restaurant. And the planned menu reflects the more casual approach with lobster rolls, pupusas, and a simple roast chicken.
Falafel on Fourteenth
Amsterdam Falafelshop signed a lease for its second D.C. location at 1830 14th St. NW joining the ever expanding 14th Street bar scene, according to Washington Business Journal. And owners Ariane and Scott Bennett are looking to add additional locations during 2014, with their Annapolis franchisee looking at opening a location in Fairfax.
Gristle You Can Chew
Chef Garret Fleming left The Pig with his sights set on an unnamed location to open his own restaurant, Gristle, according to Eater. In preparation he will be doing a preview at 3 Little Pigs, September 15-17. For $85, you’ll be able to preview seven courses that include a tomato salad with chanterelles and pig ears, rabbit croquette, and a rockfish and langoustine stew.
The Wine is Not ENO-ugh
Wine bar chain ENO will be opening its sixth location in Georgetown at 2800 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in September. You’ll be able to choose from 50 wines by the glass as well as hundreds of New and Old World options. Despite its national locations, ENO will showcase wine and bites from local producers, including Virginia wineries Barboursville Vineyards and King Family Vineyards as well as charcuterie from Stachowski’s Market and cheese from Cherry Glenn Goat Cheese Co. and Calkins Creamery.
