Chow Dept. of Substantiated Rumors: Lucky Seven

It’s true: Linda Derschang will open a new “neighborhood pub” on Capitol Hill’s 15th Avenue East in the space currently housing Cypress, formerly known as Mango’s, Kozak’s, Hopscotch, Macguire’s, Jake’s, and one more place that no one can remember. Linda’s latest will be called Smith. I hesitate to speculate about her ability to reverse the curse on this space of doom—I have been very wrong about this kind of thing before (R.I.P., Red Line)—but if anyone can do it, Linda can. Lots of remodeling is planned, maybe an exorcism, and a summertime opening for Smith.
