Developments

Popville reports that a liquor license application is posted outside the Eleanor, a new restaurant/bar/bowling alley (100 Florida Avenue NE) seasoned chef Adam Stein plans to open next month. In a Craigslist ad recruiting hospitality staff Stein divulges that he’s interested in organizing “pig roasts, lamb roasts, and crab boils” in the coming months.

Eater tracking

Arlnow reports that local officials appear likely to approve construction plans for the rooftop beer garden restaurateur Ivan Iricanin wants to erect above his next venture in Clarendon. Iricanin is bringing two Mexican eateries currently in development in Silver Spring, Maryland — the new Tacos, Tortas and Tequila, and companion eatery Buena Vida — to the former La Tasca space, and also wants to incorporate beer garden Up. Up is not projected to debut until 2019.

Expansions

Restaurateur Doron Petersan tells Nation’s Restaurant News she’s working on getting some of her specialty baked goods into local grocery stores (and perhaps regional retailers). Meanwhile, she reports that customers continue to find their way to vegan-friendly Fare Well for comfort foods with a twist. “Pancakes and burgers, that’s where it’s at,” she says.
