Townhouse/Secret Safeway Closes at 1800 20th St, NW in Dupont – What Would You Like to see There?

I’ve been getting a steady number of emails with the following type of query:

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard anything about what will be going into the now-vacant Townhouse/Secret Safeway?”

Unfortunately I haven’t heard any details on who/what may be moving in. I don’t even have any reliable, or for that matter unreliable, scuttlebutt on the space. Have you guys heard anything?

If not let’s dream a little. What/who do you think would be the perfect tenant for this location.  A brewpub?  Would a restaurant be a natural fit here?  Given the large space and location what do you think will work best here?

Also, for the folks that live nearby, will you miss the grocery store?
