3224-3226 11th Street, NW
A couple of months ago we learned a Filipino restaurant from one of the owners of Room 11 was going to take over the former El Rinconcito Deportivo space a few storefronts down from Room 11 at 3226 11th Street, NW. Walking by the other day I noticed there was some action at the vacant space next door at 3224 11th Street so I inquired with owner Nick Pimentel who tells me that he holds the lease for both spaces and is still figuring out whether to double the Filipino restaurant’s space or open a completely new concept there. Either way this is awesome news!
For those that don’t recall – plans for the Filipino restaurant are to:
“serve a range of iconic Filipino dishes, snacks and comfort food alongside a thoughtfully curated beverage program.”
Updates as construction progresses.
