Have You Tried Lily & the Cactus Yet? 

Did you know there's an Iron Chef alum in NoMa serving up delicious meals every day? At Lily & the Cactus, Chef Morou Ouattara's combines Southwest American and West African flavors for lunch and dinner. Check out the menus, then make your way to the second floor of the Hilton Garden Inn (1225 First St. NE), where you'll find a bar/lounge area, seating for parties of four or more, and an outdoor patio. Bonus: A two-course power lunch special, with select appetizer/entrée pairings for only $20.

 

Final Month of Our Farmers Market 

The inaugural season of the FRESHFARM NoMa Market has been a busy one. Whether you visited it once or made it a regular part of your weekend routine, a big thank you to everyone who has shopped there for fresh produce, meats and eggs, baked goods, prepared foods, and more. If you haven't been yet, you're in luck: the market will be in operation through the end of October. You'll find 10+ local vendors on Sundays at the corner of First and Pierce streets NE from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

 

What's Happening Around the Neighborhood 

• 100K Apartments, at the corner of First and K streets NE, is now open for leasing. The 222-unit building, which offers studio and one-/two-bedroom options, features a private courtyard as well as a rooftop pool (shown above) with incredible views of the District. While 100K fills up with tenants over the next year, WhyHotel will operate in part of the building starting this month, offering your visiting friends and family a great opportunity to stay in the heart of NoMa — and the city.

• Just announced: Sweet Science, a cult coffee establishment that's been operating out of different restaurants for the past few years, will have its first stand-alone location at The Belgard (33 N St. NE). Expected arrival: spring 2019.

• In Eckington, a block north of the future site of the NoMa Parks Foundation's 2.5-acre park, four D.C. artists are developing Stable: affordable studio workspaces for District-area artistic talents, plus a ground-floor gallery. The founders expect to open the doors this winter.
