Owner of Busboys and Poets to Open a New Restaurant Across the Street

Thanks to a reader for this great tip. BISNOW is reporting that the owner of Busboys and Poets is “now planning to open some kind of Southern-Gulf Coast-inspired place in six months at Union Row.” at 14th and V St., NW.

Also mentioned in the article is that Union Row retail will include a “Yes! Organic market which the neighborhood is pretty excited about, a Georgetown Valet dry cleaners, a restaurant (see below), and they’re talking to a national drug store, coffee shops, and pilates studios.” We’ve already reported on the Yes! and the Georgetown Valet but it is good to know about the potential for another coffee shop, drug store, and/or pilates studio. What are your thoughts about a pilates studio opening up?

  • Hopefully, the “coffee shop” won’t be another Starbucks or Caribu. I’d welcome a Murky Coffee or another non-chain. Re-opening of Sparky’s anyone?

  • I’m excited about all these new stores and restaurants opening to us… but I hope… we don’t lose ourselves in chainstore hell.

  • thank you for the mention for the spot in the pn hoffman building – it will be something exciting and in keeping with creating a neighborhood feel – it will not be a starbucks or a chain store…

  • I was thinking about taking a Pilates class…we used to do basic Pilates in a college voice and movement theater class and the results were awesome. It’s a great idea and a welcome addition to the area.
