Triple Craft Replacing Indigo Landing, Plus More Intel

Roy Rogers offers teachers free combo meals May 9-May 11

[Triple Craft]

Indigo Landing, the fine-dining restaurant in Washington Marina with sweeping views of the Potomac, is no more. Management company Guest Services has replaced it with Triple Craft, a casual concept focused on “craft burgers, craft shakes, and craft beer.”

The renovation/rebranding effort isn’t quite done yet. But Guest Services tells Eater the revamped property should be ready for closer inspection by mid-May.

A Teachable Moment

Fast food standby Roy Rogers wants to give back to the educational community this week. The local chain is offering a free combo meal to teachers who show their official school ID on Tuesday, May 9 through Thursday, May 11 in honor of Teacher Appreciation Days.

Two languishing projects are, according to their respective leaders, still in the works — even if the goal lines remain a ways off.

Jinya Ramen Bar owner Sam Shoja said redevelopment of the restaurant he has planned for 1336 14th Street NW was stalled by permitting issues and historical concerns. But he’s confident construction can now resume without further interruption, listing “early summer” as his target opening date.

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for restaurateur Jose Garces said the Philadelphia-based chef remains committed to exporting Village Whiskey to the District and expects to complete work on a multi-faceted Latin market as well.

Per the spokesman, Garces is now projected to open Village Whiskey in fall 2017, with the market to follow at some point in 2018.
