    Thank goodness it will be an American Bistro. The new Asian restaurants nearby are great but we needed some diversity.

    Finally! This space looks great, it’s about time a business opens in there (and not a gym. It is me or is every other empty fire station in the neighbourhood turned into a gym?)

    @Tony – that’s where the beach volleyball court was going to go. chilled Sauvignon Blanc and cheese would have gone great with the Massachusetts Avenue Beach Open.
