On the Horizon

Two new spots that seem ready to open any day (if they haven't already) are Jin (pictured), next door to Busboys and Poets, and Open City, from the owner of Tryst and The Diner.

Inside the "Asian Caribbean soul lounge" Jin, just south of 14th and V streets, you'll find red leather couches and orderly rows of low tables and white ottomans. The Web site indicates there's WiFi, happy hour and a dinner menu, but I haven't done enough sleuthing to know much more.

Open City, reports On Tap, "will offer WiFi and feature a gourmet coffee bar, a full-service (cocktail) bar with beer on tap and some 12-or-so wines by-the-glass, and plenty of seats in the dining area to order upscale-ish diner food like Italian-style pizzas, eggs all day, sandwiches and salads." Open City is located at 2331 Calvert St. NW.

Also on the horizon, stay tuned for news of changes at OYA, including a revamped menu.
