Locanda Becoming Ba Bay Vietnamese Restaurant on Capitol Hill

Locanda Restaurant located at 633 Pennsylvania Ave, SE has always been a mystery to me. It has been closed for years (I think, definitely many many months) but it looks like it was frozen in time with the table settings still in place:

The windows have now been papered over and a liquor license has been applied for. It says:

“Vietnamese restaurant serving lunch and dinner with a seating capacity for 49 patrons and total occupancy load of 49. Requesting a sidewalk café with a seating capacity for 10 patrons.”

I’m told the new owner is a former manager from Vidalia and he plans on opening the new spot in 3-4 months. It also worth noting that this is one of the best LLC names I’ve ever heard – Culinary Kung Fu, LLC. Awesome. More info as it becomes available.
