On Friday for the FQotD I asked what retail you thought U Street was missing and in the comments a reader mentioned that they had heard that Teaism would be opening up a shop in the Moderno at 12th and U St, NW:
The Moderno located at 1939 12th Street NW (at U Street, NW)
I checked in with the folks at Teaism and they confirmed that they are indeed very interested in the U Street neighborhood. However at this moment no lease has been signed. I’m told, if things go well, we could hear some good news in about 3 months.
Specifically I was told by one of the co-owners:
“We love the neighborhood and we’re working diligently to secure a location.”
I did however, notice that the for lease sign had come down from the Moderno retail space…
Stay tuned for more info when it becomes available.
