A quick scan of the new Barcode

The opening of Barcode, in the former Fourth Estate Grille space near 17th and L streets NW, qualifies as big, huge, stop-the-presses news -- at least as far as our happy hour options are concerned. While the vibe is totally different from the ways of old, the beer menu picks up -- and even improves upon -- where the old Fourth left off.

A dose of Fringe Festival in the off season

This year's Fall Fringe -- the Capital Fringe Festival's off-season programming -- is already shaping up to be more like a fleshed-out mini-fest with reprisals of some of the summer's most compelling and popular fare. Ten shows are remounted at Fort Fringe beginning Thursday, so if you couldn't get a seat at Kelly Bond's performance piece "Elephant" this summer, or you didn't hear the buzz about "Romeo & Juliet: Choose Your Own Ending" until it was too late, now is your chance. Here's a rundown of some of our most anticipated returning acts.

DC-3 brings boutique hot dogs to Barracks Row

First it was burgers, then it was pizza -- are hot dogs the next casual comfort food to get the boutique treatment? If so, then Ty Neal and the other co-owners of Matchbox and Ted's Bulletin will be in ahead of the trend when DC-3, their 20-seat, aviation-themed, wieners-of-America concept, opens on Barracks Row next week.

Michael Hartzer returns with Jack Rose

One reason we haven't heard from Michael Hartzer since IndeBleu closed last December is because the chef has been busy cooking up an ambitious new restaurant with his pal Bill Thomas, the owner of Bourbon, with locations in Glover Park and Adams Morgan. Come January, the two hope to open Jack Rose Dining Saloon at 2007 18th Ave. NW, the site of a former boxing gym.

Lincoln on the menu for February

The owner of Hudson in the West End is expanding his reach to downtown, assuming the space vacated by Il Mulino at 1110 Vermont Ave. NW and turning it into an "upscale-casual" Lincoln, a 210-seat nod to the 16th U.S. president.
