People’s Noodle Bar Ramen Shop Opens in Former Senor Chicken Space in Columbia Heights

Dear PoPville,

I was walking on Park Rd tonight between 14th and 16th and as I walked by the rotisserie chicken place I saw a chalkboard sign advertising it as “The People’s Noodle Bar”. The inside didn’t look too different and the large sign on the outside of the building still advertises the chicken place. There were a couple of people inside but I didn’t stop in to check out the menu. Looks like they are finally open!

Back in Nov. 2011 a reader first alerted us to the possibility of a People’s Noodle Bar coming to Senor Chicken in Columbia Heights. Since Senor Chicken closed, I had heard that there was a delay in opening because of lease negotiations. Glad somebody has reopened in the space but I’ll be very sad if we lose the Senor Chicken sign
