Bistro 18 Coming to Adams Morgan

I’ve been getting a number of emails from readers about the sign that has gone up at the old Oya’s Mini Bazaar and African Art space located at 2420 18th St NW. This is the space that I learned will become:

‘a “Tryst” type spot (coffee house, sandwiches, etc…) with low sofas and lots of gathering space. The new owners have already purchased a liquor license. There wasn’t a kitchen previously so they will have to build out a whole new kitchen and remodel the inside so it is likely going to take a number of months before they open up.’

Thanks to all who sent emails.

    Not getting my hopes up for this place. The name leaves something to be desired. Sounds a little stale and uninspired. But that’s just first impressions from the name. Maybe it will be a cool.

    I also heard that Mellow Mushroom is opening next door in the old 18th and Red space — apparently that place is adding a very large roofdeck…

      If what you say is true about Mellow Mushroom (haven’t been able to find any info on that) then I don’t care about this other new spot.

    Because we need another Tryst across the street from Tryst?

      Try to get a seat in Tryst any time of the day. They are always crowded. So the demand is definitely there.

    That sign looks terrible. Another typical dumpy looking place getting ready to open in Admo.
