Former Third Edition Space to Become an El Centro Mexican Restaurant in Georgetown

1218 Wisconsin Ave, NW

Back in late Jan. we learned that Third Edition was closing in Georgetown and the space would likely become a Mexican restaurant. Turns out that Mexican restaurant will be a second El Centro according to Eater DC:

“the Logan Circle taco and margarita destination has confirmed it will open its second location in the Third Edition space at 1218 Wisconsin Ave. NW, hopefully by June.”

We judged the Logan Circle El Centro back in Aug. 2011.

  • RIP St. Elmo’s.

    On a different note, I’ve always thought of El Centro and the Black Cat as U St. rather than Logan Circle. Is that just my U St. bias or is there a generally accepted dividing line?

    • I consider it U st as well…

      i consider it 14th street.

    • El Centro is one of my favorites, not too many options for good Mexican food in this city.

      I call 14th between RI/P and U “14th Street Corridor” but who knows what it should be called. I think of it as a different neighborhood than Logan and U Street. I would be willing to bet that 5 years ago, neither Logan or U Street would have wanted to claim that area as part of the respective neighborhood.

        Technically speaking, both Logan Circle, U street and the 14st corridor are all considered to be part of Shaw. Logan Circle and U street have successfully rebranded themselves as separate from Shaw for obvious reasons, and I’m guessing that 14th street will try to do the same.

          U St is not an “Actual” neighborhood, Logan Circle is

          Logan Circle: S Street to the north, 10th Street to the east, 16th Street to the west, M Street to the south

            I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone that lives at 16th and R to say that they live in logan circle.
