The Dirt June 2017

Asian Cuisine
The space formerly occupied by a Vietnamese restaurant and Skew Wrosk before that has found a new tenant. Asian Cuisine is moving in and has installed their new sign. This is welcome news to those who miss Asian Grill which closed last year and was located next to Panera Bread.

Lina’s Diner & Bar has opened and offers a twist on French Bistros in the space previously occupied by Quarry House Temporary and Piratz Tavern before that. At the same time, work seems be getting done on the crumbling face of the building. This wall will face the Purple Line if it ever happens.

After 20 years, Thai Market is closing. This is particularly sad to me for many reasons.

A DC Native, people say I'm rude and abrasive; I say I'm passionate. I've been working in marketing since 2005. My brothers and I paid Geppi's rent through the 80s and 90s. My relief at an indoor wavepool never materializing in Silver Spring is balanced by my disappointment that City Place has dozens of shuttered storefronts. I love what you've done with your hair.

    Hey Pete! So first, heard the Thai carryout will stay, though the market will go. This is little but some solace.

    Second, hope the restoration of the wall by new Lina’s makes it more not less possible for a cool mural project.

      Thanks, Jonathan.

      And, yes! I agree regarding the wall! That would be a welcome addition.
