Bloomingdale News: Movement on Firehouse and More North Capitol Restaurants Coming Soon?

Old Firehouse located at 1626 North Capitol Street, NW

Thanks to a reader for sharing the following info from a neighborhood message board titled Firehouse News from Brian Brown: “Signed the lease with the restaurant/lounge operator for the firehouse” :

“The firehouse restaurant is moving forward… We also are working with three other operators who wish to open restaurants and/or pubs along North Capitol Street. Two of them have already identified sites and are negotiating the terms of the leases with the landlord.”

Potentially exciting news for Bloomingdale. North Capitol seems like more of a commercial district than 1st Street, NW so do you think it will be easier for new restaurants to get alcohol licenses here or will they face some of the same obstacles that Big Bear Cafe has faced over its alcohol application?
