FALLS CHURCH—The Washingtonian gets some new details on the Galaxy Hut expansion to Falls Church. The new bar will be called Spacebar with an expanded menu full of grilled cheese and weekend lunch service, but striving for the same vibe as the Arlington classic. [Washingtonian]

CHEF SHUFFLES—Prince of Petworth has a press release naming Amber Bursik as the new chef at DC9. The bar is abandoning its fried-food-heavy menu in favor of things like pulled pork sandwiches and red beans and wine. There will also be burgers, but a little bit fancified, which shouldn't be a surprise considering how Bursik once worked under Palena's Frank Ruta. [PoP]

FREDERICK—In other revolving door news, Volt announces its has poached its new wine director, Jill Zimorski, from the Think Food Group. Zimorski worked with Volt's Bryan Voltaggio once before at Charlie Palmer Steak. [EaterWire]

BALLSTON—ARLnow reports that Willow has opened two restaurants within the restaurant. One will be a bistro called Nosh located in the restaurant's lounge area and the other is a bakery counter named for pastry chef Kate Jansen. Both concepts are already open. [ARLnow]
