Pop’s SeaBar (1817 Columbia Road, NW) owner, Justin Abad, commented on our post about the Subway sandwich shop protest:

“Before we opened in Adams Morgan, we were trying to open Pop’s SeaBar at this very location. In fact, we had a singed LOI and were reviewing Lease details when the landlord and broker pulled out of the deal last minute, with little to no explanation.

Sorry to say, but it was clear the property owner wanted to sell to a national chain rather than support small, neighborhood business. We would have loved to be a part of the Mt. Pleasant community, as both myself and business partner are former residents of Mt. Pleasant.”
