Permit Issued to Tony Shallal, Brother of Busboys and Poets Andy Shallal, for 3622 Georgia Ave south of the Petworth Metro

3622 Georgia Ave, NW

In April a reader shared some scuttlebutt that a cigar store could be coming to 3622 Georgia Ave, NW next to Lion’s.  Haven’t heard anything else on that front but on Sunday I did notice a permit posted for retail sales.  But what could be more interesting is the agent name – Tony Shallal.  Tony has confirmed via email that he is the brother of Andy Shallal owner of Busboys and Poets. Regarding plans for the space, he writes:

“We are still in the talking stage with several people, retailers, restaurants and nonprofits. The space will have 3600 sq/ft with an upper level outdoor deck, and exposed brick walls. It should be a cool space for a cool tenant.”


Whatever happens, it is nice to see the rundown space finally get fixed up.
