3124 Georgia Avenue, NW

A new restaurant is coming to the former Tax Services storefront at 3124 Georgia Ave, NW. A liquor license application posted out front says:

“A new full scale restaurant serving Asian & African inspired food, with an atmosphere for lounging and listening to DJ music or Live Bands. Entertainment with a cover charge. Total number of seats is 99. Summer Garden seating is 18.”

Sounds promising! More info as it becomes available.

  • Great news! Welcome to our neighborhood.

    Any chance that lovely facade will come down?

    Isn’t there another new place in the works on the East side of Georgia Avenue in this general area? I could have sworn I saw a banner up for some new place that was under construction just earlier this week.

    Sounds like a nightclub thinly disguised as a restaurant.

      +1… glad I don’t live real close by. I’ll give it 50/50 that they make good neighbors.

    • Gotta say it sounds that way to me too.

      yeah like the Sunshine Bar and Lounge near Takoma.

    What does “African” mean? Sukuma wiki & ugali? Tsebhis ? Tajine? Fufu, Banku, Kenkey?

    • salone

      or cassava leaf, jollof rice, peanut sauce, egusi, pepper soup…wait we have that in Shaw — Sumah!

    glad we’re finally gonna get a full scale restaurant. i’ve found those 3/4-scale places just too cramped to sit down in for more than a few minutes.
