Jeremiah Langhorne. Tim Ma. Eric Ziebold. Those are just a handful of the big-name chefs that have chosen D.C.'s hot Shaw neighborhood as the site of their next restaurant.

Many of 2015 and 2016's major openings are bound for Shaw. And it seems like hardly a week goes by without an announcement of a new Shaw destination in the works.

Here's an updated guide to what's coming and where to find the new places. Time estimates are only included if a fall projection is planned: all others are later and less reliable at this point.
