Awesome. A reader passes on from the Bloomingdale listserv:

“The Closed Subway at 1540 North Capitol Street NW Planned to Become a Restaurant/Tavern with a Liquor License – from the DCity Smokehouse team”

The Bates Area Civic Association shares more details:

“DCity Smokehouse team plans to open a restaurant/tavern at the former Subway place at 1540 North Capitol Street NW.

The name of the new business is Wicked Bloom.”

They’ve also posted a draft menu here.

DCity Smokehouse also has plans for 2nd and Florida Ave, NW. Stay tuned for updates on both fronts.
