We received a reader query about a rumor that Ethan and Angela Stowell were planning to open a charcuterie shop near Anchovies and Olives, their restaurant in the Pearl Building on Capitol Hill. “I can safely confirm that is just a rumor,” says Angela Stowell. “We’re happy to leave the charcuterie business to the pros like Russ at Rain Shadow Meats!”

Rain Shadow, owned by butcher Russ Flint, is the new meat shop in the Melrose Building.

So there you have it. If there are any other rumors or questions you’d like to investigate, please leave a comment or email us.
