>>>New Indian restaurant joins the Penn Quarter restaurant scene. Merzi is set to open with a menu full of classic Indian dishes with a healthy spin. Founder and CEO, Qaiser (Kaz) Kazmi, brings his culinary vision to the table with everything from oven-baked Naan Rolls to Mango Yogurt Juice.The Where: Merzi, 415 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC

>>>More beer for the area. Port City Brewing Company is the creation of former wine executive Bill Butcher who will join the beer brewing family in Alexandria. The brewery will produce ales to be sold throughout DC and the Mid-Atlantic region. Patrons will have the opportunity to visit the on-site tasting room and purchase bottles and/or on draft.

>>>We had to read this press release twice. A restaurant coming to the area where everything is under 475 calories?! Where have you been all our lives?? Seasons 52 opens next summer (*2011) north of the beltway in Maryland. Ok, we know we’re kind of early on this one, but this is something to look forward to… the restaurant promises seasonal, healthy ingredients without all the fryers, butters or heavy creams. Sounds like a plan…funny how our planner already has scheduled events for next summer…
