They'll have the same menu at the H Street original — fried fish, crab cakes, collards and more — plus fish tacos. No word on the exact date. [POST-PLYWOOD]

2) Del Ray: Patch reports that M.E. Swing Coffee Roasters plans to open a new location in Del Ray — one attached to a facility for coffee roasting, wholesale distribution and more. They've filed a permit application and the retail side of the space will allow customers to sample and purchase coffee by the pound and cup. It will also sell baked goods. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

3) Mt. Vernon Square: The Washington Business Journal has it that a bistro named the Carving Station and FAI Pizza are both taking up residency in the Mass Court building at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW. They are expected to open late summer. [PLYWOOD]

4) Downtown: Prince of Petworth hears from a reader that Saint Michael French Bakery is en route New York Avenue in the old Camille's Cafe space. [PLYWOOD]

5) Shirlington: ARLnow reports that the French-Vietnamese Lotus Grill and Noodles is moving in next door to Extra Virgin. They'll have pho, of course, and other Vietnamese specialties. [PLYWOOD]

6) Atlas District: PoP catches some signage for Chef Corner Cafe at 13 and H streets. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, but there's no intel beyond that. [PLYWOOD]

7) Crystal City: Finally, ARLnow learns that DelMarVa’s Southern Cafe and Taphouse is headed to Crystal Drive, perhaps as soon as this fall. The menu includes items such as a chicken sandwich topped with crab dip and a fried egg sandwich. [PLYWOOD]
