U DISTRICT—The U-District Po Dog's transformation into Detention Bar is complete. Some of the shop's signature wieners remain on the menu, but you'll also find cafeteria-style foodstuffs and a cocktail list full of highly scholastic names like "lunch lady" and "hall pass". [EaterWire]
CAPITOL HILL—The former Pita Pit's new life as sandwich shop Grubwich is complete; owner Brian Kun opened the doors this weekend. The specialty sandwiches and burger clock in at $7 apiece, plus...video games. [EaterWire]
CENTRAL DISTRICT—New Kosher-certified Beehive Bakery is softly open at 23rd & Union, serving up baked goods both sweet and savory. Also, coffee. And gluten-free. [CDN]
