Wagamama Still Coming To DC; SAX And HERE On The Way

1) Penn Quarter: OK, noodle fans, relax. Wagamama is still planning on a DC outpost. DCist confirms that the Asian-inspired chain from London definitely still intends to open in Penn Quarter. But there's no target date yet — for a project that's been in the works since 2008 — so maybe don't get too excited just yet. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

2) Metro Center: Errol Lawrence and Nancy Koide, the restaurateurs behind OYA and SEI, announced today that their latest venture SAX will open downtown in May. The lounge and restaurant promises erotic cabaret-style performances, which is exactly what you'll want to accompany your finger-food small plates from chef Jonathan Seningen (making the jump from OYA). The menu is French and so is the decor — all done up in gold leaf and red velvet. Looks like this is one to watch. [PLYWOOD]

3) Rosslyn: The City Paper says that next month marks the beginning of a "grand new era in Rosslyn dining" when Artisphere opens up its new restaurant, HERE. (Hey, what's with the all-caps these days?) Starting on April 1, the cultural events space will have homemade guacamole and versions of American and Latin comfort food from the creators behind Guajillo and Casa Oaxaca. [PLYWOOD]
