Developments

Washingtonian reports that the developers behind bustling dining hub Union Market are now making to bid to land online juggernaut Amazon’s new HQ. One option: adding on to a food-filled facility that currently houses popular eateries ranging from homegrown bar/bagelry Buffalo & Bergen to two-time Michelin Bib Gourmand pick, Bidwell.

Expansions

The Georgetown Dish reports that Glover Park residents are pushing back against adding “another pizza place” — which in this case happens to be delivery giant Domino’s — to the neighborhood. The major sticking points: concerns that “a fast-food restaurant would attract rubbish, rodents and late-night noise to the area.” [GD]

Coming Attractions

Northern Virginia Magazine reports on a mini restaurant boom on the way in neighboring Loudoun County. Restaurateur Nils Schnibbe and his expectant wife, Olivia, are working on opening: an all-day cafe/cocktail spot (Sidebar); a brewery/beer garden (More Better Restaurant & Beer Garden); and a poultry-centric food truck (Sunday Chicken).
