Plus, ramen, coffee and an NRG place for the neighborhood.

Even more high-profile restaurants are bound for the Shaw neighborhood.

The Washington Business Journal reports The Shay, an apartment building, will be home to a Tim Ma restaurant and a Compass Coffee location (not to mention a Warby Parker store). Tim Ma had announced plans to come to D.C. before, but no specifics before this.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic Plumbing building is expected to house a restaurant from Neighborhood Restaurant Group and something from the Daikaya team (Update: more info about that here). A spokeswoman for Neighborhood Restaurant Group tells Eater they hope to open Hazel, the planned restaurant from chef Rob Rubba, there, but that no lease has been signed. Both of those buildings are being developed by the JBG Companies.

It's been a big couple of weeks for restaurant development in Shaw. The neighborhood will also see All Purpose, a restaurant from The Red Hen and Boundary Stone owners, not to mention a bakery from Tiffany MacIsaac.

That building, The Colonel, will also house a Mexican restaurant called Espita Mezcalería from Josh Phillips, according to a press release from that development. It will focus on mezcal and Oaxacan food.
