From the May 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Heritage India (2400 Wisconsin Ave.) has introduced a new dessert menu that includes carrot pudding (gaijar halwa). The restaurant also has a new lunch menu and a new selection of dessert drinks and smoothies.

UPDATE: Heritage guest relations rep Andrea Adleman reports that “we took it a step beyond and introduced a new main menu in the middle of this month. It’s wildly exciting but it also means that our most loyal customers – who tend to be our most immediate neighbors – are advised to go online or come by and pick up a new copy of our menu so they can place their carryout and delivery orders with the greatest accuracy.”

From the May 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

On New Year’s Eve, a man leaving Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Ave.) encountered two other patrons smoking cigarettes outside, and he attacked one of them “for no apparent reason,” according to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration investigator’s report. The attacker said, “Sorry, I gotta do this!” before punching the victim repeatedly, the report states. The victim’s face was bruised, and the victim’s companion fractured bones in his hand while trying to break up the assault. The attacker fled north on Wisconsin Ave., the report states. The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board held a hearing on the incident and ruled in March that the bar was not at fault. As far as we can tell, no charges have been filed in the matter.

The ABC Board has fined Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) $4,000 for failing to quickly document a February 13, 2011 incident in which a female patron passed out in the bathroom and couldn’t be awakened. The bar’s security plan requires that a report about each such event be written on the day the event occurs, but the bar did not provide a report to ABRA for more than a month after an investigator first requested it, according to an April 4 ABC Board ruling. “We are not convinced that the [bar] actually created the incident report on February 13, 2011,” the ruling states. Another charge related to the incident was dropped.

Rocklands (2418 Wisconsin Ave.) will offer complimentary tastes of roast pork to patrons on April 26, starting at 11 a.m. The tastes will last as long as the whole barbecued pig on the front table holds out. “It’s a little thank you to all of you who come to Rocklands regularly,” the restaurant’s website states. “It’s also our subtle way of reminding you that we can barbeque a whole pig for any occasion.”

Breadsoda (2323 Wisconsin Ave.) is seeking permission to stay open later, reports owner Steve Teague. “We are trying to change our hours to normal DC closing hours” of 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday, he says. “Now we close Monday through Thursday at 1:20 a.m. and Friday and Saturday at 2:20 a.m.” Six Glover Park bars are allowed to stay open later, he adds.

Teague has asked Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B to support the bar’s application to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration for the change.

From the May 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The vacant storefront at 2317 Wisconsin Ave., next door to Tennis Zone, has been leased to District Noodles, a restaurant that will specialize in Vietnamese cuisine, says co-owner Jennifer Hoang, who is launching the business with her fiancé, Marc Farmer. “We will be there every day—this is our first restaurant!” Hoang reports.

The menu will feature the rice-noodle soup called pho and French-bread sandwiches called bánh mì, as well as vermicelli and rice bowl dishes, Hoang says. On April 17, the restaurant applied for a full-service (CR) liquor license—one of two that became available that day under an extension of the Glover Park license moratorium. (As of late Friday, no one had applied for the other new CR license, according to a spokesman for the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.)

Though no structural changes are planned for the building, the interior needs to be renovated before the restaurant can open, says landlord Remy Esquenet: “It’ll probably be a four- to six-month buildout.”
