Back in May ’10 we learned that Leftbank (formerly Cities) would become an Eastern European restaurant called Slaviya at 2424 18th St., NW in Adams Morgan. The Adams Morgan Bid now tells us:
“A Taste of New Orleans will be at 2424 18th Street, NW (where Slaviya is currently). They hope to be open by October 19th.”
I briefly spoke with the owner who said they should be open by this weekend. I’m already hearing from some who’ve got some preview tastes that the the crawfish etouffee is excellent. I’ll post the menu when it becomes available.
My only concern/question is – will they be able to compete with the great New Orleans Cafe down the block at 2412 18th St, NW.
