Catching Up: New Openings

I've been so busy the past month stuffing my face full of pho, curries and noodles in Southeast Asia, there's no way I could keep up with all the deliciousness unfolding in DC. So here's a little round-up, and do let me know what I'm out of the loop on.

• Jamaican patty shop-meets-reggae lounge Patty Boom Boom has opened at 1359 U St. NW. ReadySetDC has some photos.

Big Chair Coffee opens in Anacostia today at 2122 Martin Luther King Ave. SE.

Enology has relaunched as Alliance Tavern (3238 Wisconsin Ave.) with more beer options. Metrocurean hears the owners may look for a new location to resurrect Enology downtown.
