I was wondering if you had heard anything about the new Indian restaurant opening at 1700 Pennsylvania NW soon – they’re supposedly opening in the space on Pennsylvania between the Wachovia and the parking garage. There are some permits posted on the door but I can’t find anything about it on the Internet. My coworkers and I are chomping at the bit waiting for this place to open and I was hoping you had heard something!”
I checked this place, Spice Indian Bistro, out on my Sun. walkabout hoping to bring you good news. Alas, when I peeked in the window, it seems a lot of work is still left before it comes anywhere close to resembling a restaurant. Ed. Note: When I was peeking in the window and taking photographs this is one of the few buildings where the security guard immediately came out and asked me what the hell I was doing (nicely). I’m not sure if it is because of proximity to the White House but A+ for that security firm. It looks like the space was formerly the lobby or offices to a lawfirm so if I had to guess I’d say there’s still at least another month or more of build out before they open for business. I’ll be sure to update when that happens.
