New Restaurant Coming to 1225 Connecticut Ave, NW

This is not to be mistaken with 1223 Conn. Ave, NW which has had a coming soon sign for a place called Dirty Martini (that was supposed to arrive in summer 2010, next to Lucky Bar).  1225 Connecticut Ave, NW is the new silver and glass building that recently went up on the corner of Connecticut and N St, NW.  While the information is sparse at the moment, it it’ll be interesting to find out more about the restaurant.  It’s liquor license application says simply:

“New global restaurant to seat 224. Total occupancy load is 391.”

I’m intrigued by a “global restaurant”. It also sounds like it’ll be huge. More details when they become available.

  • Sounds lame. Should fit right in with the rest of Connecticut Ave south of the circle

  • I saw them craning in new I beams and reinforcing the roof this weekend. I wonder if it’s designed for a huge roof deck / live load. This actually isn’t a new building though. Just a re-skinning of the old 1970’s building that has always been there.

  • It’s just the cafeteria for the World Bank (which now occupies this building). They serve alcohol there, so they need a license.

  • I’m pretty sure a huge “global” restaurant means a pretentious place overflowing with Euro types. Oh rapture.
