Local News Brief: Ari's Diner (& Maybe DOCK FC) to Open Fri, City Dogs Opens, & Popeye's Renovates
Twitter user @Eat_DC notes that Ari's Diner (2003 Fenwick St.) is set to open tomorrow in Ivy City, and sounds hopeful that nearby soccer bar Dock FC (1400 Okie St.) might join in the opening fun.
Ari's will offer a full traditional diner menu Tuesdays through Sundays from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. (breakfast and lunch). They will also have adult milkshakes. Dock FC will eventually serve Mexican food, but it appears to just be drinks for now (@Eat_DC tweeted a menu).
The Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen at 1226 H St. is currently closed for renovations. I'm not sure how long the renovations will take, but I can tell you that Crown Fried Chicken (716 H St.) offers some pretty fabulous fried chicken for take out (they also have limited seating).
District Cuisine points out that City Dogs is now open at 301 H St. City Dogs offers daycare, boarding, grooming, and training. They are associated with City Dogs Rescue.
