Huge U Street News: Solly’s Expanding into Madjet Ethiopian Restaurant Next Door

Great news for fans of Solly’s located at 11th and U St, NW – not only will they be getting a bit bigger – but you’ll soon be able to get food too. One of the few criticisms I’ve heard about Solly’s is that some folks would like the opportunity to grab a bite to eat as well as a cold beer. Well, after some renovations – you’ll soon have that option. Owner John Solomon tells me that there will be a one month reno and if all goes according to plan it should be ready at the end of Feb.

Admittedly, Solly’s is one of my favorite bars in the city – so I think this is phenomenal news. Can’t wait to hear more about the food options. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the date.

The only drawback, I will miss the “born to cook” awning:
