Bloomingdale’s Rustik Opening Second Location in Brookland

3523 12th Street, NE

More big news for Brookland – Rustik has signed a lease for 3523 12th Street, NE. Rhode Island Insider got the good word:

“As Diton Pashaj, one of the owners of Rustik, explains to the Insider, they have leased a building along 12th Street, near the corner of Monroe Ave, as the location of their new restaurant.”

For those not familiar you can see Rustik’s menu here.

3523 12th St, NE was the space that had the “Tamo Smoothies” coming soon sign up for ages. I asked Diton when he hoped to open the Brookland location and he said the news still hasn’t even sunk in with him yet. From the outside it looks like there is obviously a bit of reno that needs to happen so let’s revisit in a few months.


Anyone know what the old NorBud sign inlaid in the concrete out front refers to? A former clothing store? Hope they’re able to preserve it!
