“Dear PoPville,

I’ve noticed that work has finally begun on the inside of the old Duchess and Queen building on 18th St. I remember seeing a story a while back that someone wanted to turn it into a new restaurant, so perhaps they are finally getting started. Do you have any updates?”

I spoke with the owner who says they are still a year away from opening. There is a major renovation of the entire building required. They had a slowdown due to some permitting issues but they’ve got that straightened out now. For those that don’t recall – Duchess and the Queen will be:

“The new restaurant will be a Belgium bistro, with a sidewalk Café with 12 seats, the establishment will have a seating capacity of 160, and a total occupancy load of 280. There is an entertainment endorsement. This will also include a Brew Pub.”
