Opposition to The American Bistro Hoping to Come to Blagden Alley


Thanks to a reader for sending the above note:

“Got home yesterday (live at Blagden Alley) and this was taped to our front door. Seems that “The American” bistro will face some opposition at the ANC.”

In late July we learned The American would be a bistro from Xavier Cervera hoping to come to the Downtown Boxing Club space in Blagden Alley.

Do you think the proposed bistro is a “commercial use that is far too intensive  the historic alley and the surrounding residential area”?

1209 – 1213 10th Street, NW (actually in Blagden Alley)
