Former King-N-I Space at 847 Upshur St, NW to Become a Sit Down Restaurant and Lounge in Petworth

847 Upshur St, NW

I’m not gonna pretend to understand what happened to the King-n-I that was located at 847 Upshur St, NW. But the closure might be a blessing in disguise. I spoke with one of the new owners who shares great news. The space is being completely gutted and while it will still feature a large bar there will also be a proper sit down area including a lounge area with tvs showing sports. At the moment the plans are to name the restaurant simply – “Good Food”. It will feature “good soul food.” They still have to apply for permits, as well as a liquor license, so it will likely be a few months before they open. Stay tuned.
