New French Restaurant/Bistro Coming to Old Shirt Laundry Building in Logan Circle

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Logan Circle and I noticed the the “For Rent” sign is no longer in the window at the Old Shirt Laundry at the corner of 14th and Q. Also, the “curtains” blocking the windows seem to have been pulled down. I was wondering if it possibly has been rented or whether something else is going on there. If you recall there was a rumor that Stephen Starr (Philadelphia Restaurantuer) was looking into the space. It would make a great place for a restaurant.

Any insights into what might be going on?”

There has been tons of speculation about this sweet spot at the corner of 14th and Q St, NW. We’ve heard the possibility of an Italian restaurant as well as the interest of the Starr group from Philadelphia.

I’m psyched to be able to share some concrete news based on a recent liquor license application. Though we don’t know the name of the new spot we have learned that a group called Parc Deux Restaurant Partners, LLC has applied for a liquor license for a:

“This is a French restaurant, bistro, and café serving classic French cuisine for breakfast, lunch dinner and brunch. Recorded back ground music will be provided. No nude performances. Number of seating 246 and Total Occupancy Load of 275. Number of Sidewalk Café seats is 44.”

Sound good?

As to who Parc Deux Restaurant Partners really are – well a quick search shows that they are based out Philadelphia…

More info when it becomes available.
