Business Ins & Outs: Streets Market, Dig, Ever/Body, Fangyan

In: Streets Market, Now on P

A well-stocked grocery store opened in the former 7-Eleven space at the northwest corner of P and 27th Streets on Friday afternoon, April 21. It is the seventh Streets Market store in Washington, D.C.

“I was elated the moment I walked into the new Streets Market,” educator and former advisory neighborhood commissioner Monica Roaché told The Georgetowner, reflecting the sentiment of many of her neighbors. “It is an attractive, well-designed market full of all of my favorite cooking ingredients. I’m so appreciative that Streets management met with neighbors to hear what we would love to see in their market. Welcome to the neighborhood!”

Working with neighbors and the incoming business, Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Gwendolyn Lohse (ANC 2E06) organized an April 4 meeting that Streets held with residents before the opening to hear their concerns on such day-to-day problems as trash removal and rodent control — as well as potential traffic dangers of having the front door on the corner of the store, as with the previous business. On hand for the cordial get-together at Apero’s across the street were Campbell Burns, vice president of Streets Market, along with Jessamine Lee and Dania Escalante of the company, who also took notes on neighbors’ favorite foods they’d like to see at the market.

Streets will also sell beer and wine, when its ABC license is approved.

In: Dig, in This Week

Dig is set to open later this week. Long awaited at the old Paolo’s side space (once a Little Tavern hamburger joint) at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and N Street NW, Dig is on a mission of mindful sourcing for its ingredients — with bowls of salads or main dishes of chicken or meatballs with names like the Autumn Harvest or Lime Leaf Salmon. Adam Eskin opened the first Dig Inn restaurant in New York City in 2011. Among Dig’s investors is restaurateur Danny Meyer. 

On Thursday, April 27, the Citizens Association of Georgetown will host a Dig Early Access Preview Mixer, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at 1301 Wisconsin Ave. NW.

In: Ever/Body in May

In: Fangyan in June

Fangyan is coming to 1057 Wisconsin Ave. NW in the ground floor space which once held the AT&T store. The clothing store will feature collections from more than 15 Asian designers and labels such as Mukzin, ZI II CI IEN and Fansilanen, in addition to its own brand of silk, wool and cashmere styles including, outerwear, swimwear, dresses and more.

“Currently, Fangyan is targeting a June 3 opening,” a company spokesperson told The Georgetowner.

Moving: Say Cheese!

The 2900 M project has forced the neighborhood favorite Say Cheese! at 1132 29th St. NW to move out because of major reconstruction that will begin at the southern side of the 2900 block of M Street NW. Business owner Suzy Nabil is seeking a new place for serving her grilled cheese sandwiches, salads and soups. Nearby stores will be emptying soon — including Ike Behar. Nabil is looking to move to Prospect Street, she says, but is still uncertain.

Out: Olive Oil Co.

Owners Emil and Hristina Merdzhanov — owners of the Georgetown Olive Oil Co. with its rows of bottles of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar — have shuttered their store at 2910 M St. NW, having moved five years ago from 1524 Wisconsin Ave. NW. The 2900 M project forced the move.
