Yesterday a reader tweeted the photo above and asked:
“ @PoPville do u know whats going in beside Belga on 8th St SE?”
Back in Nov. 2010 we learned that Capitol Video Sales was closing at 514 8th Street, SE and a new restaurant called Pacifico would open in the space. From their liquor license application:
“New Restaurant, Latin tapas, open grill, salads and contemporary cooking with recorded music.
Seating Capacity is 120. Total occupancy load including Summer Garden is 185. Sidewalk Café with seating for 30.”
Looks like they’ll have a great roof deck too. This is another restaurant from Xavier Cervera who also owns Lola’s Barracks Bar & Grill, Molly Malone’s, the Chesapeake Room, Senart’s Oyster & Chop House, Boxcar Grill, the currently being renovated Hawk n Dove, and the Park Tavern restaurant coming to Navy Yard.
