News From the Neighborhoods

Some of our local neighborhood blogs are great places to find information on retail and restaurant development, and I recently added links to a few of my favorites (at right).

Here are a few restaurant tidbits from the neighborhoods:

* From Columbia Heights News comes word that a Kudo Beans will be opening in the Tivoli Square development at 14th and Irving streets. Also opening is Rumberos, "a Latin-American style restaurant" from the owners of Adams Morgan's Rumba Café, according to the blog.

* Gallery Place Living reports on a new pool hall going in at 714 Seventh St. NW, from the folks of Bedrock Bars. (More on that from the Washington Business Journal here.) The blog also mentions that the E Street Cinema now serves beer and wine (hooray!).
