Downtown Eatery Vidalia to Close Dec. 15 — The Southern restaurant at 1990 M St. NW is slated to close Dec. 15, according to its owner. The space will be turned into “Honeysuckle,” a new “American regional” restaurant from a former Vidalia chef. [Washington Post]

From Monkey King to Tiger Fork — The Hong Kong themed eatery slated to open in the former Rogue space at 922 N St. NW restaurant won’t be called Monkey King after all. Why?

‘Hitler Was a Hero’ Scrawled on Shaw Sidewalk — Someone wrote “Hitler was a hero” in orange chalk on a sidewalk in Shaw recently. The message was washed off by about noon yesterday. [DCist]
