WP Food Critic Tom Sietsema continues to sing praises for Ethiopic (401 H St) making it his top recommendation for Ethiopian in DC ("I love, love, love Ethiopic").  Ethiopic's facade upgrade is moving along nicely as well.  We really like the new color they selected to paint the building and we're looking forward to dining next to the new windows along the north and west sides of the restaurant when the project is completed.  Ethiopic remains open while the contruction continues. touted Granville Moore's & Smith Commons as two of DC's best spots to enjoy craft beers.

The Washington Times had this piece on the newly renovated Engine House (1341 Maryland Ave) & The Station (525 9th St).  We haven't been inside either, but the exterior and landscaping work looks great and the pictures suggest the units are very nice new residential units.
