1) DUPONT—A small local chain Super Pollo is opening a new location in Dupont Circle, at 1327 Connecticut Ave., NW. It’s sandwiched in between a Halal Guys and the forthcoming Red Apron Burger Bar — which means that will be a pretty rad little strip. [PLYWOOD]

2) CHINATOWN—Yard House, a craft beer bar and restaurant, will open in the former space of the Goethe-Institut in Chinatown (exact address is 812 Seventh St. NW.) This will be the second location of YH and will be located right next to downtown beer destination RFD. [PLYWOOD]

3) ANNAPOLIS—Frederik de Pue is branching out past D.C. and headed to Annapolis for his next restaurant. Flamant will serve Flemish-inspired food and should open in the spring. [PLYWOOD]

4) ROCKVILLE—Little Dipper Hot Pot House is headed to Rockville Town Square — 101 Gibbs St. It’s a joint that allows customers to cook their food at their table and is the second location (first in MD) of the joint. [PLYWOOD]

5) PENN QUARTERFast-casual Greek-inspired restaurant GRK Fresh has two openings planned for 2017: this month at GWU at 2121 H St NW and another this summer at 1000 F St. NW. [PLYWOOD]

GRK Fresh

6) DOWNTOWN—Rare Steakhouse & Tavern is coming to 1595 Eye St. NW — a block away from BLT Steak. Rare is an import from Wisconsin and focuses on in-house dry aging and butchering. [PLYWOOD]

7) BRIGHTWOOD PARK—Library Tavern is headed to 5424 3rd St. NW. [PLYWOOD]

8) CAPITOL HILL—The Pretzel Bakery, located at the corner of 15th and C St. SE, has applied for a liquor license. Should be tough-going because of the booze-related problems that once plagued that very spot. [POST-PLYWOOD]

9) 14th STREET HEIGHTS—Athena Grill will soon open in the former Highlands Cafe spot: 4720 14th St. NW. It’s owned by the same family behind La Villa Pizzeria, also on 14th Street. [PLYWOOD]
