1) Brookland: Construction has begun on Brookland's Finest restaurant, according to Elevation D.C. The place is designed to be a family-friendly restaurant and coffee shop at 12th and Jackson Sts. NE. It's from the owner of Solly's. No firm opening date (the ANC is protesting the liquor license). [PLYWOOD]
2) Shaw: Ivy and Coney will open at 1537 7th St. NW...eventually, reports Young and Hungry. The owners of Kangaroo Boxing Club just signed a lease for the space, and are planning a chill bar. [PRE-PLYWOOD]
3) Georgetown: A bakery for a cause. Patch brings word of Dog Tag Bakery, which will open at 3206 Grace St. NW. It will also serve as a veteran training center. [PLYWOOD]
