801 Florida Ave, NW

A reader sends word on the building located at 8th and Florida Ave, NW:

“I talked to one of the construction workers this morning and he confirmed with me that it will be a restaurant with a bar. Unfortunately he didn’t know what kind of food will be served.”

Updates as more info becomes available.

    That building cries out for some larger windows. It’s rather prison-ey now.

    Hooray! Hopefully it’ll be something good. No small plates, dammit.

    I heard its going to be an artisanal knitting supply restaurant

  • A restaurant, on U St? Color me shocked!

    I’ve seen some of the garbage being thrown out from the space and I would think twice about eating there. I know it’s being gutted, but it still will play a little on the psyche. Otherwise, I’m hoping for a fusion small plates, cupcakery (real word?!?), crepe, pie and burger joint.

    I love this building. When I hit the Lotto (I’m due) I’m going to buy it.

    long overdue! Hopefully it has latenight / bar scene. The drunks stumbling out of Town and Nellies need more food options.
