Bid on Minibar for NYE; Lost Dog Cafe Expands Again

PENN QUARTER—Here are your New Years Eve plans, if you are quite wealthy: Minibar is auctioning off all six of its seats to the highest bidder for the 8:30 p.m. seating on December 31. The price of the tasting menu (but not the booze) is included in your bid — which starts accordingly at $2,012. The restaurant says that any funds raised above that starting bid will go to the DC Central Kitchen. [EaterWire]

EXPANSIONWIRE—Arlington's Lost Dog Café is planning yet another Northern Virginia expansion, this time to Vienna out by the Dunn Loring Metro station. The small local chain — with two locations in Arlington and one in McLean — has signed a lease in the Halstead Square development. This news comes just a few weeks after BlackFinn signed a lease in the same development. No word yet on when the new Lost Dog aims to open, but will keep you posted. [EaterWire]

DUPONT CIRCLE—An unsurprising update on the Heritage India shooting is that the city has suspended the restaurant's liquor license. The Alcohol Beverage Control Board says that Heritage India "didn’t follow security procedures because it didn’t have metal detectors or radios with ear pieces for its staff." [WJLA via DCist]

CLEVELAND PARK—Prince of Petworth posts a press release from Ripple about their brand new pastry chef, Alison Reed. You may recognize her name from her last post at Café Saint-Ex. Reed starts at Ripple on January 1 and will work to expand the restaurant's dessert offerings. [PoP]
