New source for cider

A new space serving cider (and food from Union Kitchen) is planned for Petworth: Capitol Cider House, reports New Columbia Heights. The cider spot will have over 10 taps of local (made with 200 miles, and some made on-site) cider plus locally made food. Capitol Cider House is looking to open sometime in 2018.


So there’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news first: Small Fry, the Park View “non-traditional smoke-house and fry shop” will close for good on the first day of 2018 (as per POPville.) The good news? The 3212 Georgia Ave. spot is staying in the family — Small Fry sister restaurant SUNdeVICH is taking over the space. A sign posted on the restaurant’s windows say the move is to solidify the SUNdeVICH brand in the District.


Horace & Dickie’s fans just outside DC, you’re in luck — the casual fish mini-chain is expanding in Prince George’s County, reports Washington Business Journal. A new location at 7901 Martin Luther King Jr. Highway in Glenarden will join the existing PG County location at Seat Pleasant.

Seeking permanence
