108 Rhode Island Ave, NW

It’s been a while since we heard about El Camino coming to Rhode Island Ave by Boundary Stone – but I took a peek earlier in the week and they are nearly finished with the buildout. I was told if all goes well they should be able to open by the end of the month. El Camino is the:

“full-service restaurant featuring traditional-style Mexican food with a variety of Latin cocktails, by the partners behind 1905 Bistro & Bar as well as Tony Lucca and Phil Rodriguez also of Sticky Rice DC.”

and around the corner is Costa Brava.

The even longer wait for Spanish tapas serving Costa Brava looks to be coming to an end too. Sign is up and construction seems to be wrapping up as well. Their facebook page says:

“Barcelona meets DC Lounge!”

And across the street from El Camino is Showtime who have applied for “a sidewalk café with an occupancy load of 6 seats”.

Already pretty big but super popular so very good news. I’m guessing it’ll wrap around onto 1st Street? From a liquor license placard out front:

“Requesting expansion of sidewalk café seating from #38 to #99.”
