If you’re nostalgic for the dearly departed Farrah Olivia you can breathe a little easier next week: on August 10th Koru will open to the public in the old Bebo space in Crystal City.

Thrillist is reporting that the restaurant opens today but Open Table is still not taking reservations and a call to the listed phone number confirms that they open this coming Monday. Farrah Olivia fans will be happy to know that Morou will continue to drive the food direction and Heather Quattara will manage, just like old times. Thrillist says another tradition is kept up: Koru is the name of their youngest daughter where Farrah Olivia was named for their oldest.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
