The newest hoagie hub under the Taylor Gourmet banner opens at 11 a.m. today on 14th Street NW. Mayor Vince Gray is supposed to be there for the ribbon cutting; Louis Sarcone Jr., however, probably won’t.
Also opening this morning: A new bakery, Le Caprice DC, in Columbia Heights. Here are some pics of the place. [Prince of Petworth]
Prolific restaurateur Xavier Cervera‘s new Boxcar Tavern has opened near Eastern Market; his tapas place on Barracks Row, Pacifico, meanwhile, is about four months away and the ole Hawk ‘n’ Dove remains a construction site. [The Hill Is Home]
Eclectic Café, a new restaurant concept from the former owners of the defunct East River Bagel, is coming to the Minnesota-Benning Government Center. [WaPo]
Prix fixe yourself: D.C. Restaurant Week is, like, next week. [NBC Washington]
OK, we might be a little drunk—-but nowhere near as fitshaced as the folks from Boston. Among “America’s Drunkest Cities of 2011,” the District doesn’t even crack the Top 25. Heck, Norfolk is more tanked, apparently. [The Daily Beast]
