  1. I don't remember what was in that block before Market Common either. The location isn't in here but for a stroll down memory lane, scroll through this album (Constantine Hannaher's) of lost retail. Amazing old pictures of former spots like Strangeways and Bardo and blocks in Clarendon.

  4. Yes. It's amazing how they've transformed the La Tasca space. This Washingtonian article describes how the menu and background for the Clarendon location is different than the Silver Spring location. I had a couple of dishes (there's a link to the dinner menu in the Washingtonian article). I had the dry soup with three chiles which was fried vermicelli in ancho, guajillo and chipotle chiles with cheese, avocado, and cilantro, and I had the ribeye aguachile, which was a rare, sliced ribeye, served cold, with radish and onion and a light burnt chile sauce. I enjoyed both dishes. I also received chips and salsas and warm corn tortillas. Very friendly staff, like the staff at Ambar/Baba Bar. I forgot to add -- they're offering at 25% discount for the first two weeks for reservations made through their website (though they gave me the discount without a reservation). Facebook post with offer.
  5. Buena Vida (2nd floor of the La Tasca space) opened in Clarendon today. The restaurant on the first floor, TTT, isn't open yet but soon.
