Georgetown Wing Co. soft-opens in Georgetown this week

Georgetown Wing Co. had its soft opening this Sunday on the second level of 3291 M Street above Crêpe Amour, and it looks like all are welcome. Commence the great wing wars of Georgetown! But not really. Glancing at Wing Co.’s menu, they offer pretty different fare from Wingo’s—like ‘mango caliente’ or chili lime sauce […]

Ristorante Piccolo, a cozy Italian restaurant in Georgetown that a fire shut down in 2008, has finally announced that it will reopen in the last week of April, Georgetown Metropolitan reports.

Languishing Shops at Georgetown Park will be auctioned off next month

Ever wondered why the Shops at Georgetown Park, which sits on some of the best land in the best-trafficked shopping district in D.C., is nearly half-empty? Dueling kings of real estate, that’s why.

A year after opening, Georgetown’s Ed Hardy closes down

When Ed Hardy opened up at 1250 Wisconsin Avenue last February, it was the company’s flagship D.C. location. Now that Ed Hardy is closed, reports by Be A Socialite, District residents are left without a tattoo-art-inspired clothier to patronize. We’re so sad? Not really. Ed Hardy didn’t seem like the kind of store that would […]

Review: Morso Express’s so-so debut

Despite its 2 a.m. closing time, if you’re looking for another late-night hotspot for drunken food binges and shouted conversations, the recently-opened Morso Express isn’t it. Nestled in a sliver of real estate along on M St. near Rhino Bar and Dean and Deluca, this place is classy. Gawk at the mod-style lamps! And the […]

Morso Express, Mediterranean casual dining, opens Friday on M Street

Vox always sensed that something was missing from Georgetown’s already ample smorgasbord of restaurant offerings, but we were never sure what it was.

In any event, this Friday, Morso Express, a dine-in and take-out Turkish-influenced restaurant, is opening its doors at […]

UGG coming to Wisconsin Avenue at old Diesel site

This week, Georgetown Metropolitan, ever more meticulous in his reading of long, boring Advisory Neighborhood Commission agendas than Vox Populi is, discovered that UGG Australia is opening up a shop on Wisconsin Avenue. The store of the eponymous bootmaker (or as GM likes to call them, the “purveyors of a canklefied silhouette”), will be located at […]

Georgetown “Social Safeway” to reopen on May 6

Vox doesn’t necessarily share the same enthusiasm of the Safeway press release announcing Social Safeway’s impending reopening—which is entitled “The Return of a Washington, D.C. Legend”—but we are excited to hear that after almost nine months of construction, the Safeway on Wisconsin Avenue has a scheduled a definite date for when it will reopen, May […]
