4720 14th Street, NW

This is the former pizzeria and hookah bar near Highlands Cafe. Thanks to a reader for sending word:

“Excited to have some (hopefully) good Greek food in the neighborhood!”

They also send more details from Rob Pigott who runs the Community Alliance for Upper 14th Street:

“The 4700 block of 14th St NW will have a new restaurant opening it’s doors this coming weekend…..I stopped by last evening and met the owners of the ATHENA GRILL. The business owners are the same family who operates La Villa Pizzeria (located at 14th & Crittenden). I expect that they will open their doors no later than March.

Also, on that same block (two doors down), Las Placitas will be opening, hopefully BEFORE March.”

Updates as they get closer to opening.

Thanks to all who emailed and tweeted word. A reader first reported earlier last week (and others have confirmed they were dark through the weekend):

“Swampoodle’s been closed up tight for at least two nights in a row. I wonder if this is the end for them?”

This one hurts given how long it took Swampoodle to get open.

Their last facebook post was written on Nov. 29th gives no indication that anything was amiss:

“#TACOTUESDAY has arrived! Get three tacos and a margarita for $12 #delicioso”

Updates when more is known.
