This week's top dish from Eater DC, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
METRO CENTER—Eater took a look inside The Hamilton, a massive new 24-hour restaurant and live music venue that is opening in the old Borders space across from the National Press Building. And wow. The place is a monster. Do go check out the preliminary pictures of the space, scheduled to open on December 18.
GEORGETOWN—Next week, a group called Uncurbed is bringing one of DC's food trucks off the streets and into a vacant Georgetown building for a pop-up restaurant of sorts. Eater has all the details of the event, which kicks off with the BBQ Bus.
ALEXANDRIA—Following a monthlong renovation project, the Evening Star Café has reopened its doors in Alexandria with a new look and a new chef. Eater got a look at all the changes in decor, including a brand new beer system that features taps installed into the front of vintage 1950s refrigerators.
PIEWIRE—Why would you order a box of vegetables from a farm when you can get pies instead? The ladies behind Whisked! have launched what they're calling a Community Supported Pies program.
EVERYWHERE—Earlier this week, Eater updated their Heat Map of all the newest and hottest restaurants in town, including places like Little Serow and Meatballs.
OPENING REPORT—There were a couple of big openings at the start of this week, including Memphis Barbeque out in Crystal City and Bryan Voltaggio's new lunch-only concept that is appropriately named Lunchbox.
