Pete’s Apizza kicks off week of restaurant openings

Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza opened its third branch in Clarendon this weekend, kicking off what looks to be an impressive stretch of restaurant openings. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

Kahn’s Mongolian Barbecue opened on H Street today, filling your customized pan-Asian stir-fry needs.

This evening, Medium Rare, which Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema wrote about in January, opens in Cleveland Park. The restaurant comes from Mark Bucher, the man behind BGR, and will feature but one item: steak frites.

On Thursday, Bojangles will open its first restaurant within the District at Union Station, marking the first time I will have ever been jealous of my Marc train-commuting colleagues.

Toki Underground, the much-discussed and long-awaited H Street dumplings and ramen bar, is expected to open Friday.

The Queen Vic (also on H Street!) started serving drinks Friday and hopes to have its kitchen operating by the end of the week.

And on Monday, Harth, a restaurant I wrote about in January, will open its doors in Tysons Corner.
