Last week we learned Nando’s Peri Peri would be opening their Tenleytown location on May 21st and the transformation on the outside from Armand’s Pizza looked great. Turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of how freaking amazing the space turned out. I was able to take some preview photos earlier this week – and I’m gonna have to say this is easily in the top five coolest restaurant renovations I’ve ever seen. Followers of PoPville know that I love old stuff – so it will come as no surprise that lots of old elements of this building were uncovered and incorporated into the new space. You can read the cool background on the building and design below:

Honest to God, the photos won’t even do justice to how awesome it is. Have a look:
