Thanks to all the readers who sent in word about this exciting development. We’ve been following this property closely last hearing that it might become a bakery back in May. Ed. Note: I have a very good feeling we will be hearing about a new bakery for Columbia Heights soon but more on that when deals have been signed. Many folks sent emails after they saw the liquor license application which says:
“New restaurant serving casual Mexican cuisine. Full menu with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Seating capacity of 75. Total occupancy load of 99. Summer Garden with 37 seats and Sidewalk Café with 16 seats.”
That great news on it’s own but I was able to find out a little bit more info about the folks behind the restaurant. So here it is – this space will be put together by the owner of Jackie’s in Silver Spring. However Jackie and her colleagues from Quarry House Tavern, also in Silver Spring, will be working together on this new restaurant. I hear that the food will be quality Mexican, both authentic original and also some ideas inspired from Los Angeles. I found this pretty funny since we literally just had a huge discussion about the best Mexican spots in the city. Last bit of exciting news about is that at some point they will be expanding the space to include a roof deck (knock wood, knock wood).
More on the restaurant as progress is made.
