It has been almost a year to the day since we last spoke about the new restaurant, Barrio, that was supposed to come to 3418 11th St, NW (next to Columbia Heights Coffee). While the name was a bit controversial, it is unfortunate that this space will remain vacant.
A reader sent the heads up from Don Rockwell that they will not be opening. The restaurant was going to be opened by the owners of Local 16. It doesn’t seem like there has been any progress at their other new proposed location, 1832 14th St. NW, either. I’ll post more details as they become available.
Maybe this will give Columbia Heights Coffee another opportunity to expand?
