Capitol Fine Wine and Spirit (415 H Street) has a new exterior featuring glass windows (minus the bars that had previously been on them). The store had begun construction on a new exterior that had been shut down due to a lack of permits. The new exterior is a welcome improvement compared to the previous one.
Signage is up for the relocation of the Washington Cash and Carry in Union Market (1270 4th Street, NE–the very large building just south of Masseria on 4th Street, NE). It was announced awhile ago that the Cash and Carry would be relocating to Landover, Maryland to make way for a complete redevelopment of the block. A large residential building called the Shapiro and a major retail space managed by Edens (which owns Union Market) are planned. According to the Washington Business Journal, celebrity chef Jose Garces will be opening a large market as part of the building.
6th and H Bar and Grill (523 H Street), which only opened a few months ago, is now listed for sale (h/t to Popville for having it first). According to the real estate posting, the property can be yours for a mere $3 million. Despite being listed for sale, as of this weekend, the restaurant was still open and operating as usual.
We’re a couple of days late to this, but initial signage has gone up for the Starbucks that will be coming soon to the new apartment building at 625 H Street (there is an Unleashed by Petco coming to the same building). Based upon the construction, it is probably safe to say that Starbucks will open this spring at some point.
DC Harvest (517 H Street) recently put up new signage outside of the restaurant and has launched a bunch of new nightly specials. For example, Tuesday is now date night where you can get 2 cocktails, 2 entrees, and 1 dessert for $50 and Wednesday is now pasta night where you can get half off homemade pastas. You can see all of the specials down below.
