Pesto Ristorante Becoming a (Seattle’s Best?) Coffee House in Woodley/Cleveland Park

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard any murmurs about the old Pesto Ristorante space on Connecticut, between Woodley Park and Connecticut? I constantly see people in there working on the space, but wasn’t sure if they had found a new tenant!”

Pesto, located at 2915 Connecticut Ave, NW, closed back in Sept. 10 (and before that was Mrs. Simpsons). I also noticed a bit of construction and a permit on the window a few weeks ago but I couldn’t tell then who was going in. But I think I finally have the answer – it looks like it’s going to be a coffee shop. Peering in the window I was able to make out a sign advertising Seattle’s Best Coffee.

Any fans of Seattle’s Best? Think they’ll be able to compete with Starbucks just up the block (3000 Connecticut Ave NW)?

Sorry for the bad photo but the sun wasn’t cooperating. Though if you squint a bit you can see a series of Seattle’s best coffee choices.
