Hill Buzz

These little wintery mix forecasts just won’t quit! Of course last week, when I headed to the West coast for work, we got some real accumulation.  But I can’t really complain since I was enjoying lovely 60 degree California weather while folks here endured one of the worst commutes in history.

I guess we’re all getting used to the false alarms because the grocery store was still fully stocked with bread and toilet paper when I stopped by tonight.  In fact, the only thing that was truly picked over was the salad greens. Have we all decided to be healthy while stuck (or not) in our houses?  Come on folks, you were supposed to abandon your New Year’s resolutions by now!  Right, well enough about the weather.  On to some light reading to kick off your Tuesday morning.

  • Lydia DePhillis, who writes the Housing Complex blog over at Washington City Paper did an extensive piece on H Street for the Paper and used the blog to cover everything that didn’t fit in the published article.  Lots of interesting details and history, including lunch with Joe Englert.  Read here, here, here and here.  And a bonus piece on the streetcars here.  The Committee of 100 determined that the the lines along H Street and other areas of Capitol Hill needed further thought.
  • We’re getting a new sweets shoppe on Barracks Row: Sweet Lobby, which will serve macrons! Metrocurean has the details.
  • Washingtonian called Atlas Room the “most sophisticated restaurant” on H Street (H Street Great Street)
  • Senart’s Oyster House will hopefully be opening this Spring on Barracks Row (We Love DC)
  • In what I hope will be a new trend with ANC commissioners, Kirsten Oldenburg has started a blog and invited her neighbors to meet with her to discuss the issues that are most important to them.
  • Brunch and the City (that’s me!) reviewed brunch at Granville Moore’s.  They will expand their Saturday brunch to Sundays starting this weekend.

    I’m not 100% positive, but is the NYT indirectly accusing the Hill (yet again!) of being a bastion of junk food?


    I’m pretty sure that picture is from Ted’s!

    The Hill isn’t mentioned in that article. I’m pretty sure they just figured using a photo from their archives would be easier/most cost-efficient/less time-consuming than taking a new photo. People not familiar with Ted’s and/or the the previous article surely wouldn’t associate that photo with the Hill. (Although, I didn’t think the NYT was accusing the Hill of anything negative with the last article either, so perhaps I’m just not as sensitive as many others.)
