sala thai is fine for delivery and take-out? I don't understand the point about mediocrity somehow profiting from the restriction - if a restaurant truly sucks, it goes out of business, no? As pointed out in the comments, Adams Morgan is packed to the gills with bars and restaurants and I wouldn't say it's any kinda amazing dining district. Brains, tell me how it is.

TOMBOT, Tuesday, 18 November 2008 06:05 (7 years ago) Permalink

Sala Thai is eh. I used to eat there plenty before Rice and Regent Thai opened. Now I pretty much just do Rice since the last time I went into Regent Thai it smelled distinctly like rat poison.

This overlay needs to get changed but it's not really a problem as it stands - I know plenty of people looking at opening up in that corridor and they don't expect any problems getting a zoning exception.

I think new building in DC should require all retail on the ground floor without restrictions - this would drive retail rents way down and would negatively impact efficiency of new development somewhat, but it effectively translates to having developers subsidize cheap retail. Because of the building height limits DC retail spaces are overpriced and we lack a proportionate population to support retail, so lower rents could do a lot of good.

Mediocrity does profit from restriction sometimes - like with cabaret laws in NY.

I think the biggest factor in keeping bad restaurants open is lack of reliance on repeat business. Woodley Park is a great example of this - it's got the same demographics and a similar streetscape at Cleveland Park just up the street, but it's got a bunch of shitty places and Cleveland Park has, generally, very good ones. The large hotels in Woodley Park mean there are a bunch of tourists and conventioneers coming through who are going to eat at that random indian place or wherever because it's right between the Metro and their hotel - I don't think it's the locals keeping that row in business.

I don't think Yg's argument is valid here given the current state of development along 14th/U St. There are a lot of older struggling places in that stretch that would actually be less expensive for a restaurateur to buy out and remodel than a new space would be. If Sala Thai is able to stay open despite not doing very much business that just means they'll eventually be bought out by another operator that thinks they can maximize their volume in that space.

Have they done this for previous presidents-elect? If not, this is a blatantly partisan move by an organization funded with taxpayer money.

I just got back from a very brief visit to your fine fine city and I am still getting over the fact that I'm going to be living near the fabulous Kramers book store rather than here. Though Kramer's website is a bit self-congratulatory, or at least the video is. ETA now some time in February, so will miss the Mall madness...

ljubljana, Monday, 24 November 2008 10:48 (7 years ago) Permalink

Kramerbooks is a fairly small bookstore with an OK selection and decent beers and shitty food. And it's open 24 hours on the weekend. That's all.

I'M ACTUALLY FINE (I DIED), Monday, 24 November 2008 15:35 (7 years ago) Permalink

TOMBOT I am on crazy schedule for the next 2 weeks but should be OK to look at some places after.

I'M ACTUALLY FINE (I DIED), Monday, 24 November 2008 15:38 (7 years ago) Permalink

I live in Swindon now, so an ok selection and half decent food will do me fine for now :-) I'm afraid I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to cities at the moment...

ljubljana, Monday, 24 November 2008 15:38 (7 years ago) Permalink

Recommendations for better bookshops very welcome, thanks in advance...

ljubljana, Monday, 24 November 2008 16:24 (7 years ago) Permalink

Second Story Books in Dupont is pretty okay for used stuff. Other than that. . . Olsson's used to be the other big indie bookstore around here, but they shut their doors. So you're stuck pretty much with Borders and B&N's.

Mr. Que, Monday, 24 November 2008 16:27 (7 years ago) Permalink

Thanks Mr Que. My colleague whom I'm replacing there also recommended Second Story Books, but she worked in Swindon for even longer than me, so I should not rely on her warped judgement...

I'll drop the excited puppy thing now. I'm showing up provincial England. I'm capable of getting over-excited by Whole Foods as well.

lots of clichés in that article. Poverty and crime and policing and good government issues and DC history are more complicated than that guy will acknowledge.

curmudgeon, Thursday, 30 June 2016 18:02 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

yeah and apparently the greatest political participation the author could muster is an anonymous open letter and moving his small business tax revenue to some undisclosed location that's definitely not DC. He also never actually tried to find out why things were/are bad and terrible, just allocates blame that suits his own bigotry.

The part re: Columbia Heights being evidently worse than it was when I lived there 11 years ago feels about right, sadly.

ANC 1A chair Kent Boese, whose commission represents Columbia Heights:

My concerns with the District’s police force falls into two main areas 1) the decision a year ago by Chief Lanier to eliminate police district based plainclothes units with little forewarning or community input, and 2) our ability to train and maintain new recruits at a time when we have a significant number of police officers leaving or retiring.
The elimination of plainclothes officers stationed in our communities was a misstep that likely has more to do with MPD’s attrition rate than it does with the changing nature of crime. It was equally disheartening that our Councilmember’s response to concerned residents seeking a return of dedicated plainclothes officers was that of equating plainclothes policing with jump out squads. In conversations with beat officers, DC Police Union members, and the Office of the Attorney General, have all said that addressing the most problematic criminal behavior in our community has become more difficult since the elimination of the vice squads. This is particularly true with nuisance properties – places that can and do harbor drug dealers, illegal firearms, and prostitution.
MPD’s decreasing number of experienced officers is also concerning.

I saw Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon and other original Freedom Singers perform, 50 some years later, some of their civil rights anthems last night and talk about them, and it was very impressive and inspiring and occasionally sad and depressing(not the quality of the singing, but the subject matter talked about and sung about). The event at the Metropolitan AME Church in W. DC (where Frederick Douglas long ago once spoke) was part of the March on Washington Film and more Festival going on this week and next. Ysaye Barnswell, who was once in Sweet Honey in the Rock with Johnson Reagon, later did a version of "Wade in the Water" with "Black Lives Matter" in the lyrics. She can still emote powerfully too.
