Mi Vecindad Cuban/Mexican Restaurant Becomes il Capo di Capitol Hill Italian Restaurant

1129 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

Mi Vecindad restaurant opened up in the summer of 2010 at 12th and Pennsylvania Ave, SE near Frager’s Hardware store. Walking by over the weekend I see they’ve become il Capo di Capitol Hill Italian restaurant. I really enjoyed Mi Vecindad so I’m a bit sad to see them go but hopefully the new Italian joint is tasty.

I kinda liked how it’s in the shadow of the long closed Caffe Italiano sign next door. That building is now home to the B Spot juice bar, tea house and art gallery as well as Pizza-Iole on the first floor of 1123 Pennsylvania Ave, SE.
