Thanks to an eagle eyed reader for spotting a Jetties permit coming to the former Juice Zone space (which closed in Oct. 2011) at 20th and I St, NW next to the Baja Fresh. This will be a fourth location for Jetties which has two other locations in DC. We judged their sandwiches back in April 2011. You can see their menus here.
According to the permit, the I Street location will have seating for 15:
I wanted to share something I noticed in Foggy Bottom. The Allen Lee, a rather run-down hotel (really, a quasi-hostel) at 2224 F Street, has a notice posted on the door about a public hearing regarding changes to the building. It mentions the proposed changes including a high-end restaurant and 81 room hotel.
The notice posted is a liquor license application which says:
“A new hotel/restaurant serving upscale food and drinks, with 81 rooms.”
The classic Foggy Bottom/GW bar – Froggy Bottom Pub, which came to 2142 Pennsylvania Ave, NW in 1985, is moving nearby to 2021 K Street, NW in the former Thai Kingdom space, which closed after 25 years in Aug. 2011. I spoke with a manager at Froggy Bottom who said they’d remain open in the Penn. Ave space until they move, which is expected in February. You can see their menu here but the manager said it would be completely revamped in the new space. Stay tuned.

I’ve gotten so many emails asking about the former Tony’s Flowers (Tony’s was there for 40 years) space at 20th and I St, NW. I finally found out what’s happening – an East Indian restaurant will be moving into the space after extensive renovations. More details as they become available.
