1928 I Street, NW

I’ve gotten so many emails asking about the former Tony’s Flowers (Tony’s was there for 40 years) space at 20th and I St, NW. I finally found out what’s happening – an East Indian restaurant will be moving into the space after extensive renovations. More details as they become available.

Oh yeah, they may also put in a roof deck:

  • i love this shack. and much as i love indian food, they should have painted this place yellow and made it West Indian instead.

  • Mike

    Oh No! Where will I be able to buy porn and flowers while I have my keys made???

  • annonny

    The “extensive renovations” should start with tearing down this place. I think DC has matured past the point of needing a double-wide on this downtown corner.

    • Considering how valuable that corner must be, you’d think that would just happen.

  • whovous

    A roof deck? Will stairs be necessary, or can you just pull yourself up?

  • Wait, ANOTHER indian place? There’s already Aroma right across the street, Rasoi two blocks away, and possibly Heritage India moving into the opposite side of the same block.

    • This is 20th and I, not 19th and I, just FYI. But I agree – not what’s needed on this corner. Oh well.
