The Pinch American Restaurant Coming to former El Salvadorena Space in Columbia Heights

Folks have been wondering for many months what would be coming to the former El Salvadorena space located at 3548 14th St, NW (14th and Parkwood Pl) in Columbia Heights. I’m psyched to finally get word of the new plans. According to a recent liquor license application The Pinch will be a:

“New restaurant serving contemporary American cuisine. Occasional live music or spoken word performance to be offered in basement area. Occupancy load is 99. Sidewalk Café 28.”

First floor pre-renovation

I also ran into the owner who let me take a couple shots of how the space looks now.

Lower level pre-renovation

If all goes they are shooting for a spring opening. Lots more info coming as construction progresses and they get closer to opening.
