1610 14th St, NW

Back in Feb. 2012 we learned that a new Italian gastro-pub and wine bar was coming to the former HR-57 space at 1610 14th St, NW in Logan Circle. It was later revealed that the Hilton brothers were going to take over the space and include a performance space. I’ve just learned that the Hilton brothers will be focusing on their current (numerous) projects and will hand over the lease to Executive Chef Ari Gejdenson from Acqua Al 2. So it looks like we’re in store for an Italian restaurant after all! Stay tuned.

    Nice – this is a double win. That means more phenomenal food for U Street/14th Street AND hopefully the timely completion of The Brixton, Satellite Grill, the taco garden, The Independent coffee shop, and that French place up in Petworth.

    • Speaking of “that french place up in Petworth,” what’s up Chez Billy?! The time has arrived to open! Update please!
