Somebody Got the Rib Pit!

3903 14th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking by the old Rib Pit building near 14th and Randolph, and I noticed the For Lease sign has been taken down (it is up over the old Rib Pit Lounge next door), and it now looks like the space is being renovated.”

Back in July we noted the Rib Pit and Rib Pit lounge spaces were for sale at 14th and Randolph St, NW.

Stay tuned for more info on the new restaurant as it becomes available.

    • Don’t worry, it will probably be a pupuseria

    • **please don’t be another CRAPPY taqueria. PLEASE don’t be another CRAPPY taqueria**

      There I fixed it for you. But to be honest, I don’t think we’ll ever get a good taqueria here. District taco is the best we have.

    • i wouldn’t mind another taqueria. the thing i like about this area is how different it is from the rest of dc.

  • Please be a pit. Of ribs.

  • According to the always reliable internet, the registered agent of Zaal Holdings LLC has the same name as the guy tied up in all the mosque embezzlement issues in the mid 2000s. The Washington Times says that trial deadlocked and was declared a mis-trial, but if it is the same guy, is the restaurant construvtion likely tied to a pupuseria?

  • They’ve already been working, too. Heard ’em a few weekends ago.

  • Please, please, please don’t let this be another greasy takeout place or Mexican dive. This strip has so much potential, but is begging for a upscale casual place to anchor it. There is plenty of room for everyone, but we have enough dives on that street (not to mention pawn shops, pay day loans etc). If we could get one decent restaurant, it could spur further development. With all of the foot traffic at the Red Derby, any place should do well.
