1) SHAW: At long last, The Dabney, Jeremiah Langhorne's new Mid-Atlantic restaurant, opened its doors over the weekend. Here's a tour of the space. The restaurant is planning to be vigilant about its local sourcing. A menu was not immediately available; no reservations yet, either. Status: Certified open (though not tonight, because it will be closed Mondays). 122 Blagden Alley NW; website.
3) PENN QUARTER: Ella's Wood-Fired Pizza reopened recently after renovations. Green Owl Design gave the restaurant a new look. There are also seasonal menu changes. Status: Reopened. 610 9th St. NW; website.
