So quit your crying that Mount Pleasant never gets anything good!! Thanks to all who emailed and as one said, with this and the coming Paisley Fig, things are looking good on the Mount Pleasant strip.

Yesterday Washingtonian reported:

“The owners of Woodridge’s Mediterranean restaurant Nido are moving toward Spanish cuisine and its Moorish North African influences for their next restaurant. Co-owners Erin Lingle and Karlos Leopold will open Mola! in Mount Pleasant. The phrase means “It Rocks!” in Spanish.”

And Washington CityPaper reported:

“The duo behind the restaurant, Karlos Leopold and Erin Lingle, say they’re trying to create a neighborhood gathering place for laid-back date nights or a quick glass of wine. Leopold lives nearby.

Mola! is scheduled to open in late spring for dinner. The brunch menu will follow in the summer. Find it at 3155 Mt. Pleasant St. NW.”

Ed. Note: Radius closed back in August 2016. Nido opened in Woodridge back in 2015.
