ardeo bardeo

Finally some good restaurant news for Cleveland Park (RIP Palena) from the Washington Post:

“Expect to see kati rolls (wraps, such as one with pork), pao (a kind of sandwich on a soft buttery bun) and kabobs (such as pathar gosht with lamb) among the offerings. Also: uttapam, a fermented rice pancake, and bhel puri, a sweet and savory snack with raw mangoes, lentils and puffed rice. Prices will range from $9 to $14.

Bindaas will occupy less than half of the current Ardeo + Bardeo space on Connecticut Avenue NW. The new venture will seat 50 diners…”

Updates when they open.

A reader reports:

“Don’t know if you’ve been in the new Yes! yet, but lookin’ pretty posh! The offices are in the new upstairs giving it added length. Roomier aisles and better stock, and a juice bar to boot (with soups.)

No sign of beer or wine yet, but according to the ABRA application the hearing date is June 29, so maybe it’ll just take awhile (don’t know where they’ll fit it!)”
