Finally there is new tenant for the former Carribou Coffee space and more recently the former Uptowner Cafe space which closed in Dec. 2010. It’s been vacant ever since but not for much longer. I spoke with some workers at the property and they say the owner of Mediterranean Spot at 15th and U St (formerly 24/Seven located at 14th and U) will be opening up a second location here. I called the folks at Mediterranean Spot and they confirm they’ll be opening up a second restaurant with the same name and similar menu here. Stay tuned for an opening date when they get closer to opening but it should be in the next 2-3 weeks.
