In restaurant news the City Paper reports that The Big Board (421 H Street) will hopefully open October 8th. CP also says that Mike Lunsford, formerly sous chef at Granville Moore's (1238 H Street), will serve as head chef at The Big Board. DCist and Eater sound excited that Toki Underground (2nd floor of 1234 H Street) will soon host Baohaus chef Eddie Huang. It's a pop-up event planned for October 14th and 15th. During the event Huang and Toki Underground head chef Erik Bruner-Yang will work the line together, and no doubt produce some amazing fare.
