A few weeks ago we took a look at Mediterranean restaurant’s new paint in the former Love Cafe space at the corner of 15th and U St, NW:

July 9th

The lime green paint job didn’t get much support.

Thanks to all who’ve written in – the lime green is gone! I stopped by this weekend and the new colors look much much better (see top photo.) I also briefly spoke with the owner who says they are hoping to open this week. Good news all around.

    The new colors are much better. Kudos to the owners for getting rid of that horrible lime green.

    It looks more like mint (which is very trendy right now BTW) than lime green to me. Never been a big fan of brick being painted brick red.

  • much much much much much better!

    Now if someone could only tell Sweet Mangoes on GA & New Hampshire that bright green isn’t a good look too. Yeesh!

    Boring and invisible. I hope they get a good sign.

  • MUCH better than before!

    I know the owners and they have been a steadfast business in the U Street corridor for at least the 11 years I’ve lived here. I think they’ll do great in this new location. Their baked goods are phenomenal.

    Are we sure the green was intended to be the final color? It looks kind of like the primer used when painting darker colors like the red pictured above.

  • Did they change the color because of the negative comments here on PoP? Are we bullies?

    It’s a good change – got rid of the eye-poking acid lime green, but kept some eye-catching color in the bright blue window frame. I applaud this!

    Can’t see it now! Not as visible as before.

    I am glad they made the color change! It looks much more appropriate to their name ( the mediterranean spot) and much more respectful to their new neighbors. I loved the food at their old place at 14+U, and I think expanding and adding a brick oven pizza oven will be a great addition to an area with not too many lunch place options.
