Coming Soon

From Charlotte, NC comes Fuel Pizza & Wings, a locale set to start serving at 16th and K on January 18th. The opening will even feature free food for one year for the 1st fifty customers and complimentary menu tastings throughout the day. So head over there for New York-style pizza in interesting combinations from the Old Bay Crab Pizza to the favorite Extreme Fuel, an extensive gluten-free pizza menu and smokin’ wings.

Prince of Petworth brings us more from Shaw’s All Souls neighborhood bar. He spoke with owner David Batista, who previously worked as a manager at Jose Andreas’ Zaytinya and Jaleo. Batista tells PoP that All Souls, coming to 725 T Street, will be a neighborhood spot that “will feature a variety of craft beers and mainstream beers.”

Already here

Washingtonian’s Best Bite Blog brings us an early look at Irish Whiskey, the three-story restaurant on 19th Street Northwest in Dupont Circle. Open just one week, the kitchen is manned by Executive Chef Sean McIntosh. Think of the menu as “modern Irish-American cuisine taking Irish classics and adding a modern spin.” The Chicken “Osso Bucco” with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes sounds amazing. Be sure to check out the photo gallery!

Power Lunch

The Palm makes it on Forbes’ Top 10 Restaurants Across The Country For A Power Lunch list. About the Dupont Circle steakhouse, Forbes writes that it has “lured in every president from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton, and continues to pack in scores of lobbyists, lawyers and politicians every day around 12:30 p.m.” So like you already knew, lunch there if you want to sit with movers and shakers.

Restaurant Week

The first week of Restaurant Week is almost over, but don’t worry, many restaurants are extending the $20.12 lunch and $35.12 dinner deals. DininginDC has a great list of extensions for you procrastinators, as well as a Restaurant Week Guide.

  1. Thanks for the tip on Fuel Pizza. Had not heard of them coming. Their logo reminds one of the old Esso logo.
