Georgia Ave News: Bilal Closes, Construction and Coffee at Fasika

Sad to see Bilal Grocery papered over at 4328 Georgia Ave, NW, especially since it looked like it had just recently been renovated. In either happier news or worse news it looks like the decrepit buildings next to Fasika (4422 Georgia Ave, NW) are finally getting renovated. Or it’s gonna look like this for months. I’m cautiously optimistic because of some permits I spotted in the unit to the left of the photo.

And looks like Fasika is adding a serious coffee component to their restaurant:

  • Great news! I walked by there the other day, and although I didn’t see the coffee joint, I saw signs for a soul food place. Did I get it wrong?

    • Prince Of Petworth

      I’m not sure if the soul food place is still open, I’ll have to double check next time I pass through!

  • The soul food place is not open. It’s used as the commercial kitchen to supply food carts with a variety of items (besides hot dogs):

    I talked to a staff member of the Georgia Avenue/Rock Creek East Family Support Collaborative (the organization that owns those under-construction buildings). He said they had initially gone in to make a few upgrades, and had come across some major issue, and thus had to stop work, re-budget, and find additional funding. I can’t remember exactly what the problem was, but it was something major like some previous renovation had removed support beams.
