Expansions

As is this the case with just about any proposed changes to one of D.C.’s most historic neighborhoods, Georgetown residents are worried that burgeoning chain Wawa’s new 7.100-square-foot store (1222 Wisconsin Avenue NW) will disrupt their way of life. The grab-and-go spot adored by Pennsylvanians opened a 24/7 outpost downtown last year, and is adding more locations in Tenleytown and Columbia Heights.

Spotted

According to media reports, former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama had dinner over the weekend at Michelin-starred Tail Up Goat.

Dining enthusiast Michelle Obama continues to make the rounds in the local dining scene. Last week she had dinner at the Michelin-starred Dabney.

Developments

Sushi Nakazawa, the controversial New York-import tucked into the back of the Trump International Hotel, is opening up its 30-seat dining room on Friday, June 22. The additional seating will be available on Fridays and Saturdays to start. Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema recently raved about the meal he had at the restaurant’s dedicated sushi bar.
