From pop-up to permanent
Here’s a pop-up gone right. After more than six months operating as a weekend pop-up at Capitol Lounge, deep dish pizza-makers Vin & Vic’s will now have their pies available every night at the Capitol Hill bar. The pizza will remain the same, though there will no longer be an emphasis on natural wines paired with the pies. They’ll offer it to-go on Caviar as well.
The upcoming Hong Kong-inspired restaurant from the Fainting Goat team that’s going into Blagden Alley in Shaw has already made a name change. Formerly christened Monkey King, they’re calling it Tiger Fork instead. Expect an early 2017 opening. [WCP]
They get the job done

(More) Beer Here
Leesburg-based farm brewery Barnhouse Brewery has finished its expansion of its brewhouse. This means higher capacity (as in quadrupled), the ability to do lager-style craft beers, and the appearance of their brews in local restaurants starting in early 2017.
