Happy New Year, friends! Now that we’re back in town after the holiday madness and have made it through our first week of work, I assume everyone’s ready to nosh, imbibe and start 2012 off on the right foot.
- Fortunately for us, there’s a new restaurant to try. District Kitchen opened this week in Woodley Park and Eater DC gives readers a preview of the space and menu. While it looks like they’re still working on the website, you can check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
- If you’re like me, you like to have something to look forward to. Enter (or is that re-enter?) Shaw’s Tavern. The restaurant has a new management team and they’re working on getting the much-talked-about spot back up and running sooner rather than later.
- Then there’s Yo! More Sushi! The motorized sushi joint that hails from London will set up a conveyor belt in Chinatown some time this year. Because don’t you just love grabbing your food as it rolls on on by?
- While we were all off gallivanting with our families and friends, two DC spots announced they were closing. Artfully Chocolate in Logan Circle and Crepes A-Go-Go in Dupont Circle are go-going (had to, sorry!), though Artfully Chocolate’s Alexandria locations will remain open.
- DC wouldn’t be the same without its museums, and in the food world, Julia Child’s Kitchen exhibit just might reign queen of all. The exhibit will close temporarily this Sunday, so if you haven’t made it yet, get down there…stat!
- Perhaps the biggest story of the week is about Elisir, the new upscale Italian eatery located in Gallery Place. They will no longer be charging 29 cents for water. This is good news for those of us with austerity resolutions, I suppose.
