Back in Oct. 2011 we learned that an Italian restaurant called Caldo was coming to 300 Massachusetts Ave, NW. Caldo pulled out of the space when owner, Chef Alfio decided to open up Zuppa Fresca in NoMa (incidentally I’ve gotten many emails from folks saying Zuppa Fresca is now open for dinner – menu here: Zuppa_Dinner_Menu.)
At any rate this meant the retail space at 300 Massachusetts Ave, NW remained vacant. Until now. A new liquor license application says that the Carving Room (not to be confused with Cafe Carvy which recently opened downtown) will be a:
“New Restaurant. House cured and hand carved sandwiches. Occupancy load is 65. Sidewalk Café with 50 seats”
Sounds potentially awesome. I’ll be sure to update when they get closer to opening.
Ed. Note: The storefront is actually on 4th St, NW. You can see from the photo below the storefront on 4th looking north towards the intersection of Massachusetts Ave and H St, NW.
