The Codmother Coming to Replace Cafe Nema, Touchdown to Replace Momo’s Sports Bar on U Street, NW

Before I left on vacation I noted some movement at the former Momo’s sports bar located at 1334 U St, NW. Turns out both Momo’s sports bar and the former Cafe Nema space, located below Momo’s, will be getting new tenants.

From recent liquor license applications:

Coming to replace Cafe Nema is arguably the greatest new name for a restaurant, well, ever?

The Codmother will become a:

“New Tavern and Lounge serving fish, chips and seafood cuisine. No entertainment. Seating capacity is 50. Total occupancy load is 50.”

Touchdown will replace Momo’s and become a:

“New sports bar and lounge with DJ playing recorded music. No dancing and no nude performances. Seating capacity is 67. Total occupancy load is 67.”
