Dear PoPville – What’s Going on at the Old Hoagie House at 4th and N St, NW?

1251 4th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Do you know what’s going on with the construction at 4th and N St. NW? Looks like it might be some type of restaurant/cafe.”


A permit was just issued last week for a 6 month extension on the buildout for a mixed use property. It is also interesting to note that on the permit the agent name is Steven May formerly affiliated with Bloomingdale’s North Capitol firehouse project…

CityPaper previously reported:

“It’s actually a long, comma-shaped lot, with more property on 4th Street behind the corner storefront, and Fathi plans to turn most of it into apartments with a cafe on the ground floor.”

Fathi was formerly affiliated with Shaw’s Tavern during their liquor license troubles.

Updates as construction progresses and when more info becomes available on a potential cafe.
