From a press release:
“Douglas Development today announced that Pret A Manger has leased a two-story retail building in Capitol Hill, located at 301 Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast Washington, DC. Just two blocks from the US Capitol Building, Pret A Manager will move into its new location by spring 2014.
Pret A Manger will occupy 4,300 square feet and offer two floors of indoor dining space, as well as a large outdoor patio. For the past fifteen years, Cosi has occupied this busy downtown corner, next to former Top Chef Contestant Spike Mendelsohn’s two restaurants, Good Stuff Eatery and We The Pizza.
Douglas Development Principal Norman Jemal adds, “Pret A Manger will thrive undoubtedly, given this building’s location and outdoor seating.”
