    There's a new kid on the block in Shaw and he's cooking up something tasty. Meet Seasonal Pantry, the newest venture from Ali Bagheri and Daniel O'Brien at 1314 1/2 9th St. NW (close to both the Shaw and U St. metro stops). O'Brien, a former sous-chef at some well-known DC hotspots, has moved into the neighborhood and we couldn't be more excited.

    The pantry is part gourmet grocer, restaurant and supplier of some tasty homemade goods. If you want to stop in and pick up a fresh cut of meat, their butcher has a great selection including fresh pork chops, chicken, veil and even quail.

    If you're not up to the cooking challenge, they also offer a variety of prepared items such as chicken pot pie and meatballs. One of the best things about Seasonal Pantry is their monthly clubs. For example, September is "Fresh Pasta" month, where $35 gets you two types of handmade pastas per week as well as some special pasta sauces in-hand at your first pick-up.

    The real treat here though is their Supper Club, which runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings throughout the year. The pantry is turned into a mini-restaurant where lucky diners gather around a communal table and experience from 3 to 12 courses, depending on the type of meal being served that week. You can reserve up to a party of six and you must purchase a ticket in advance. The menu changes weekly and is posted just before reservations open up. For more information on the Supper Club, click here.

    If you can't make it for dinner, be sure to stop in and take home something from their amazing selection. Let us know what you think in the comments section and be sure to view some condos in the neighborhood, here. Who knows--you might end up walking there one night soon!

  • HGTV Selects First DC Home For “My First Sale”

    Posted Under: In My Neighborhood in District of Columbia  |  July 30, 2010 8:55 AM  |  615 views  |  No comments

    Mark Wellborn over at UrbanTurf is reporting that HGTV has selected it’s first home to be featured on Washington, DC’s edition of My First Sale.

    The home might be surprising to some.  While many were expecting the DC homes on the program to be represented by chic, up-scale neighborhoods like Dupont Circle or West End, the chosen home isn’t even in the same quadrant.

    The home, located at 1214 U Street in Southeast, is an Anacostia DC home that has been refurbished.

    HGTV didn’t waste any time, and filming has already gotten underway, featuring the owner, David Garber, as well as he agent, Darrin Davis.

    “The first day of filming involved covering the pricing of the home, as Davis pointed out the positives and negatives and the two settled on a price of $289,800,” Wellborn wrote.  ”The following segment filmed the staging appointment as Susan Campbell of Lemon Tree Staging explained what should be done, and the furniture was delivered. The most recent taping was of the broker’s open house.”

    You can read Wellborn’s article in its entirety here.

    It will be interesting to see whether HGTV fully tackles the neighborhood, and shows some footage that does not display Anacostia in a pretty light.

    CondoDomain DC has tons of Anacostia homes for sale!
