Leftbank Becomes Slaviya in Adams Morgan

Back in early March we learned that Leftbank was closing its doors at 2424 18th St., NW. We knew that a restaurant was going to take its place but we now know that Slaviya, an Eastern European restaurant has opened up in the space.

I had a chance to chat with one of the new owners over the weekend. In addition to an Eastern European restaurant there will also be live music and DJs. Last night they featured a Bulgarian Folk Singer ($10 cover charge). Next Sat. they will be featuring the uber popular Romanian duo, Morandi, who is regularly #1 on MTV Europe according to co-owner Irena. If you want to see Morandi, it will be $30 in advance and $35 at the door and Morandi will go on at midnight (though you can always just go to the restaurant if you are not interested in the music).

Much of the space looks the same though there have been some slight changes. More photos after the jump including photos of the brunch menu.
