Expansion Plans Moving Forward at Maple in Columbia Heights and Il Canale in Georgetown

3418 11th Street, NW

Back in November we learned of Maple’s plans to expand into the former Columbia Heights Coffee space on 11th Street. They’ve now applied for a liquor license on that space:

“Applicant is requesting to expand to the adjacent ground level space increasing the seating capacity to 66, use of the second floor with 18 seats and increase outdoor seating capacity on side walk cafe to 34 seats.”

Also in November we learned that Il Canale would be taking over the former Cannon’s Fish Market space next door. A recent liquor license application for their expansion says:

“Retailer Class “C” Restaurant with occupancy load of 88 including ENTERTAINMENT, SIDEWALK CAFÉ and SUMMER GARDEN. Requesting to expand into 1065 31st Street, NW. 1st and 2nd floors Seating to 56 and Sidewalk Café increase to 30 seats. Summer Garden increase to 150 seats. Increases total Seating Occupancy Load to 442.”
