Thanks to a reader for sending the photo and word that:
“Not sure it this means actual progress, but they are replacing the roof at 14th and V.”
Back in Sept. ’10 we had learned that a new Tex Mex restaurant, La Fonda, had applied for a liquor license at the old AM PM carryout at 14th and V St, NW. La Fonda was going to be a:
“New Mexican restaurant offering “Tex-Mex” styled cuisine with live entertainment featuring a single musician and karaoke. Seating capacity is 220. Total occupancy load is 332. Sidewalk Café with seating for 48.”
Sadly, it appeared the deal fell through as there was little sign of progress on the building. Great to see work starting. It’ll be interesting to see if this means La Fonda is back on board or if someone else will be coming into the space. Stay tuned.
