Dangerously Delicious Pies, Safari and More Coming

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Welcome to the Plywood Report, where we fill you in on what's coming up in food. See anything happening in your neighborhood? Send us a note at

1) Penn Quarter : Prince of Petworth has an update on the Penn Quarter location of Dangerously Delicious Pies. The dessert shop hopes to open in the next four to six weeks at 901 7th St. NW. They just got a building permit. There's also a Dangerously Delicious location in the H Street corridor. [PLYWOOD]

2) Petworth: The former Kenyan restaurant Safari closed a few years ago at 4306 Georgia Ave. Now, a similar restaurant with the same name will reopen in December at that same location. They won't be restricting themselves to Kenyan food though, Tim Carman reports. [PLYWOOD]

3) Mount Pleasant : Haydee's may be looking to stay open 24/7, if a recent application for a liquor license amendment is to be believed. Prince of Petworth has more details. [POST-PLYWOOD]

4) Shaw : The apartment building that will eventually house the first DC location of Silver Spring Burmese restaurant Mandalay has gotten a permit, WBJ reports. [PLYWOOD]

5) Falls Church : There's signage up for a new Dunkin' Donuts location coming soon to a newly rebuilt shopping center off of Lee Highway. That same location once housed Lebanese Butcher, among other tenants, until a fire burned the building down. [PLYWOOD]

6) Old Town: The Georgetown Patch reports that Fleurir Hand Grown Chocolates is close to opening a second location in Old Town Alexandria, at 724 Jefferson St. The building will house both a retail shop and a manufacturing facility. [POST-PLYWOOD]

7) Merrifield: Plywood Report checked in with Taylor Gourmet owner Casey Patton, who says the sandwich shop's Mosaic District location is still far off from opening (as a commenter predicted). He says they'd like to get open by the new year. [PLYWOOD]

8) Dupont Circle: Borderstan has an update on Glen's Garden Market, the grocery store that will replace the now shuttered Secret Safeway. They're aiming for a spring 2013 opening. [PLYWOOD]
