Friday Question of the Day

Did anyone see the Post article on all the restaurants coming to H Street, NE? We once discussed this a long time ago but I think it may be a bit more apropos now. Is development on H Street, NE a zero sum game vis a vis development of Georgia Avenue? I ask this because it seems the primary force behind H Street’s development is Joe Englert. Mr. Englert was/is also a minority owner in Temperance Hall. Now it seems like Mr. Englert has abandoned Georgia Ave. development to focus on H Street. I’m not saying there aren’t other investors or visionaries out there but it seems tougher to realize without him. I always joke with my attorney who lives near H Street that Georgia Ave will have more restaurants than H Street. But I’m beginning to doubt myself. So what do you guys think – does development on H Street take away money and investors from Georgia Ave.?

Ed. Note: Do you the readers have any interest in my covering H Street, NE development?
