On August 22nd there will be a hearing regarding Dukem’s petition to be open 24 hours a day. There is a notice of the hearing posted in Dukem’s window on the 12th street side.
Why do they feel they need to be open 24 hours a day? As their neighbors, we are concerned. Dukem makes a lot of noise already, often late into the night. They fry their food outside without controlling the grease or the fumes.
Dukem recently built a room upstairs that will have live music.”
Dukem Ethiopian Restaurant is located at 1118 U St, NW.
How do you guys feel about Dukem expanding into the second floor and staying open 24 hours a day?
Would you like to see other restaurants on U Street stay open 24 hours?
