“Dear PoP,

I wonder if you’ve heard any updates or projected opening dates for 3313 11th in Columbia Heights? Last I heard it was going to be a mexican tapas like place with specialty tequila drinks owned by Jackie Greenbaum. I live around the corner and pass by it all the time and have never seen any activity. And now the permit/license thingy on the steel gate is almost torn/falling off.”

Sorry for those who may be nursing a tequila hangover but thanks to a reader for sending an update after this week’s North Columbia Heights Community Association meeting:

“Dear PoP,

Update on the vacant yellow building on 11th & Lamont (3313 11th St, NW). Jackie Greenbaum of Jackie’s and Sidebar in Silver Spring is bringing a funky Mexican cuisine to Columbia Heights. Even though the space is only 800 Sq Ft feet, it will have 24 seats downstairs, 30 seats rooftop and 20 seats outside. The menu will be simple as the kitchen will be small. Jackie also mention that there will always be a $5 margarita and plates will range from $2 to $15. She is also interested in utilizing the public gardens behind the building for restaurant use. All permits have been acquired and the building will start in the next couple of weeks with an opening some time in July or early August.”

11th St, NW keeps getting better and better.
