501 Florida Avenue, NW
The transformation of Florida Avenue continues with The Royal coming from the owner of Vinoteca (wine bar just south of 11th and U St, NW). Washingtonian shared some details:
“The sliver of a spot in LeDroit Park will be called the Royal after its former tenant, the Royal Liquor.
You’ll likely find a coffee shop with a small food menu in the mornings and afternoons, while evenings will bring a concise lineup for dinner.”
Coffee shop plan sounds a bit like the nearby Bistro/Kafe Bohem located a block away at 6th and Florida.
Washingtonian also says the space should fit about 40 seats and will open this summer. Updates as more info becomes available and they get closer to opening. Thanks to all who sent emails and tweets.
I don’t remember Royal Liquor but it was also briefly Stylistics Salon back in 2009:
