I’m Eddie Cano streatery struck
Saturday afternoon, someone drove a van into the northern section of the temporary streatery outside I’m Eddie Cano and Rosemary Bistro Cafe (5014 and 5010 Connecticut Avenue). No one was hurt, but the crash put I’m Eddie Cano’s tents and street seating out of commission.
Here’s what the streatery looked like in mid-December:
Pop-up game day food at Bread Furst
Pizza, cheesesteaks, nachos and wings aren’t Bread Furst’s usual fare. But during a one-day Super Bowl Sunday pop-up called “Alfredo’s Italia,” the cafe at 4434 Connecticut will serve those items from 2 to 9 p.m. The nachos on the menu are from “the Ventnor recipe,” a nod to Ventnor Sports Cafe. The Adams Morgan sports bar closed in 2018 after 14 years, and its owner was Scott Auslander, Bread Furst’s director of sales.
Other Super Bowl specials
You’ll find cheesesteaks, pizza and wings at Tesoro Trattoria & Pizzeria (4400 Connecticut). The restaurant is encouraging customers to call (202-363-6100) or email (email@example.com) orders now for pickup on game day.
Uptown Market (4465 Connecticut) also has a special game day menu. And if wings and pizza aren’t your thing, Tesoro, Uptown and other local shops and restaurants offer a variety of cuisines and are standing by to serve you.
