A helping hand
Homegrown Mexican restaurant Agua 301 is joining the fight to help rebuild flood-ravaged Houston, volunteering to donate 15 percent of total sales on Sunday, September 3 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The waterfront spot typically works with different charities as part of its “Give Back Sunday” program, electing this week to focus on the immediate threat facing those trapped in storm-battered Texas. Other local restaurants, bars, and beverage producers plan to collect funds on Saturday, September 2.
More Wharf happenings
The pizzeria local restaurateur Med Lahlou is planting inside the massive Wharf complex will be called Lupo Marino, not Marinai as thought earlier. The 1,900-square-foot spot is expected to feature “Italian street foods” and will be led by Lupo Verde executive chef Matteo Venini.
On the move
Local chain Silvestre Chicken, which serves Latin American favorites ranging from roast bird to baleadas, is relocating its store in Largo down the road a bit. The shop across from the Largo Metro station closed on August 27; the new outpost is at 12500 Fairwood Parkway, Bowie, Md.
Hold tight, Georgetown
Salad chain Sweetgreen tells Eater that the super-sized storefront installed at 1044 Wisconsin Avenue NW will now get underway on Sunday, September 10. The shop, which was originally projected to start functioning this weekend, is the biggest Sweetgreen to date.
