They call it the White House, but that's a (increasingly) temporary condition.

To each his reach, and if I can't cop, it ain't mine to hang.

hey Slate: fuck youuuuuuuu for reprinting a 15-year old column about "life in DC" and saying "it's still remarkable how little of the city's character has changed."

So, I'm coming to join your cool place-to-be city some time around February. Pretty jammy timing. I've visited before but only for 2-3 days. I think I'll be living somewhere near Dupont Circle/19th, if I take over the apartment of the last incumbent in the job...

http://yglesias.thinkprogress.org/archives/2008/11/no_restaurant_for_you.php

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 (nine 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.

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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine 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...

So Armstrong Williams has taken himself out of the running to buy the City Paper (per a tweet from W. Post writer Terris) but there's been no announcement of anyone else yet. Southcomm wants to sell the paper/website by 12-31. I know many of you never read it, but a few geeks in town do check out its politics and arts and foodie coverage, and even its sports column.
