Does anyone know if Jordan Cappolla. owner of the late Jordan's 8 on Barrack's Row on Capitol Hill, has any plans to open a new restaurant in DC? Where? When?

    I hope he can decide what his next place wants to be, I could never figure out what J8 really was, sushi bar? sports bar? steak house? bling spot? all of the above?

    if he happens to see this - focus, you need a focus. it can have all the other stuff as well but it needs to have a core ID.

      Ya I totally agree. That place was doomed from the start because he was doing too much at one time---and over charging.

        Whatever he does, I hope he puts a big crab next to it. Any meal is enhanced by placing a crab behind it.

          That's hysterical. As is your commentary.
