Thanks to a reader for sending word of this big change coming to Adams Morgan. The former Saki/District space (which for a second looked like it would become Saki again) is going to become Federal Restaurant & Lounge from the owners of Floriana (located at 1602 17th St, NW in Dupont.) Federal’s Open Table page simply says:

“From the owners of Floriana, opening soon.”

Stay tuned.

  • Federal? What an exciting name.

  • Great! Another crappy restaurant to look forward to in Adams Morgan. Didn’t they open the disastrous Pulpo up in Cleveland Park?

      Is Pulpo really disastrous? Haven’t been there yet, but they seem to have a pretty good brunch deal that I was thinking about checking out.

        Yeah, disastrous is probably the right word. Not good on just about every level.

  • ASAP

    I like the food at both Pulpo and Floriana. And the staff is great. I’ll admit that the look of the places could be better, but there is far worse in this city. It will not be “crappy.”

    I have always found the food at Floriana to be mediocre at best. I think it is always crowded simply because of its location.

    I’m a little disappointed in this news, as I was looking forward to the return of Saki. Their sushi was not bad at all, and their happy hour sushi specials were hard to beat.

    Yum- I love Floriana, though I do think that it’s very dish dependent (and have never done the brunch there).
