1) Shirlington: A brand new awning is now up at the Shirlington Cheesetique location, which is getting close to opening. They're also now hiring some cheesemongers for the new spot. [PLYWOOD]

2) Adams Morgan: Prince of Petworth gets another look inside Mintwood Place, which is aiming to open by the end of this month. He's got some nice shots of the interior of the restaurant, including the wood-burning oven. [PLYWOOD]

3) Logan Circle: Thrillist gets a tour around Tortilla Coast and its 50-person patio and 30-foot mural of "Mexican street art." The restaurant's newest location will soft-open later this week and offer dishes like ceviche, al pastor tacos and cilantro-marinated skirt steak, all part of its endeavor to be more Mex than Tex-Mex. There's also a brunch with chilaquiles and something called "Mexican French Toast." [POST-PLYWOOD]

4) Columbia Heights: Remember the Z-Burger that's been headed to Columbia Heights' Tivoli complex for awhile now? Well, PoP gets a look inside the construction zone there as well. They've opened up the space and apparently it's now aiming to open in a few weeks. For real this time. [PLYWOOD]

5) Atlas District: As you may recall, Boundary Road is documenting its progress on Facebook. The latest evidence reveals that the forthcoming H Street NE spot gets some really nice sunlight and, oh yeah, the graphic is all painted and pretty on the outside of the building. [PLYWOOD]

6) K Street: And, finally, PoP also checks in on the Fuel Pizza coming in on K Street. The buildout has indeed begun and a few pictures reveal the restaurant's liquor license application and more. [PLYWOOD]
