More food in Wash West

Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran, who own Bindi, Lolita, Open House and Grocery in the 100 block of South 13th Street, are two weeks from opening Verde, a flower-chocolate shop in the street-level space at 108 S. 13th St. that housed Robin's Books. (Robin's is now upstairs.)

They also say they plan to go next door -- into the rest of Robin's space at 110 S. 13th St. -- with another restaurant. This one, unnamed so far, will have a liquor license. Concept will be Mediterranean and there will be a woodburning oven, Safran says.
