1230 9th Street, NW

Holy moly has this been a long time coming! We first heard Fino Italian restaurant, formerly of Georgetown, would be moving to Shaw back in 2012!! They’ve now posted a liquor license placard:

“New restaurant serving Italian food. Total Occupancy Load: 75.”

Stay tuned. Back in 2012 the building looked like this:

  • This is wild! Malik Fall is opening his place upstairs and Fino will be in the basement, it appears. A prior announcement proclaims: “Chef Malik Fall is aiming to open 1230 at 1230 9th St. NW. by the end of February. The 4500 square foot restaurant will span two floors and have a lounge and whiskey bar. There will also be a 1000 square foot deck with a retractable roof”. This is a gorgeous building and it’s wonderful to see it being brought to life again.

  • I used to drink at Fino in Georgetown when I was in high school! Is this going to be the same kind of operation?
