CityCenterDC, the splashy new development in the middle of downtown, has now opened the majority of its restaurants. From out-of-town imports like Fig & Olive to homegrown concepts like Amy Brandwein to buzz-drawers like Momofuku CCDC (which just opened Saturday), it's clearly a project that's having an impact on the city's restaurant landscape. Here's what's open so far from the dining perspective, starting with the most recent.
Momofuku CCDC: D.C. is right now smack in the midst of Momofuku madness. The new arrival serves ramen, buns, snacks and more.
Milk Bar: The sister bakery to Momofuku opened a day earlier, serving crack pie, compost cookies and more.
Centrolina: Centrolina debuted this spring, and was the first full-scale restaurant and market from a D.C. chef, Amy Brandwein. It's received praise for its pastas in particular.
Dolcezza: This coffee and gelato local chain opened in CityCenter in April, serving up such items as nitro coffee.
Del Frisco's Double Eagle: This steakhouse chain debuted in September 2014.
DBGB Kitchen + Bar: Daniel Boulud's first Washington restaurant was an outpost of DBGB in Washington, opening just before Del Frisco's. After lots of hype but a mixed critical reception, it's settled into its role as a well-regarded bistro in the development.
RareSweets: The pastry company that got its start in one of D.C.'s food incubators is serving up macarons and more, since last December.
Fruitive Juice Bar is a few weeks away from opening in the development.
The Smith, a New York restaurant, was originally in talks for CityCenter but later revealed plans to open elsewhere in the city.
