Back in August ’11 we pre-Preview of Mintwood Place coming to 1813 Columbia Rd, NW below Perry’s in Adams Morgan. I stopped by this weekend to see how it was progressing. I was lucky enough to run into the owner, Saied
Ayoubi Azali, who invited me inside to take a few photos. There are still some finishing touches ongoing but they are fairly confident that they’ll be open by the end of the month.

This is def. one of my top three places I can’t wait to open (the other two are Chez Billy’s in Petworth and the Tryst/Diner spot coming to Columbia Heights.)
