1648 North Capitol Street, NW at R Street

We first heard about plans for Pub and the People back in October:

“A neighborhood restaurant and bar with 70 seats indoors and a potential for up to 100 outdoors. The largest patio in the area will also provide a view of the U.S. Capitol Building (which will be nice, assuming it ever reopens). Indoors, the space will bring the atmosphere of DC’s early pubs and restaurants. Think exposed brick and wood, not suspenders.

We have recruited Chef Dan Dalcin, currently Sous Chef at the award-winning Black Salt in Palisades. Chef Dan’s menu will offer traditional American cuisine, and will draw influence from several other cuisine types: Southern, Southwestern, Seafood, Asian, and Vegetarian.”

And we saw some renderings later that month. And now they’ve applied for a liquor license:

“New Tavern serving high-quality American Fare with entertainment for special events, live music, karaoke and community speaking events. Total occupancy is 99. Sidewalk Café with seating for 125 patrons.”

Very much looking forward to this becoming a reality.

Ed. Note: On Washington Firehouse Restaurant’s facebook page they wrote on Jan. 30th:

“Thank you to everyone who signed the petition, emailed their representatives, and came out to support The Washington Firehouse Restaurant. Our ABRA hearing lasted almost 7 hours yesterday and we should hear back from the board within 60 days as to their determination on our application and the hours of operation. As soon as we hear from the board we will post the news on our Facebook page. Thank you again and have a great week.”
