The Yards/Capitol Riverfront Scuttlebutt: Molly Malone’s to open 2nd Location?

Yesterday we spoke about the huge score announced for the Capitol Riverfront area including a new Harris Teeter and seven restaurants.

Well, it looks like it’s only gonna get better. A very good source tells me that a Molly Malone’s (currently located at 713 8th St, SE on Barracks Row) and a Churchkey (currently located at 1337 14th St, NW in Logan Circle) will be announcing that they’ll be opening 2nd locations in the Boilmaker shops. I give this scuttlebutt a 72% accuracy rating. I’ll be sure to update when/if there is confirmation.

Is Capitol Riverfront going to become the next H Street, NE? I kid, I kid. But seriously are they?

UPDATE: The good people of Churchkey write:

“We will not, nor do we plan to replicate what to us is a very special and unique singular concept. What was released by The Yards developers on Monday is accurate. Neighborhood Restaurant Group will be opening a Buzz Bakery as well as a new, craft brewery in that space.”
