Back in Jan. ’10 we first heard rumblings of a new neighborhood bar for Bloomingdale to be called Rustik Neighborhood Tavern. At that time Rustik was looking to open at 1832 1st St, NW (across from it’s current location at 1st and T St, NW.) Well the space has been vacant all that time. I’ve finally heard some potentially exciting scuttlebutt – apparently a Thai restaurant is interested in the space. At this point I don’t know how far negotiations have progressed but as soon (if) a lease is signed I’ll be sure to update.
If true, do you like the idea of Thai restaurant here?
