8th and Upshur St, NW
Transformation of the 800 block of Upshur Street, NW continues – big time:
From the Petworth listserv:
“I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m Justin Logan, and my wife Jessica and I have signed a lease to open a Latin American wine bar in the space at 800-802 Upshur, which includes the space now occupied by the Riyad Market.”
The Washington City Paper reported:
“they do have a name: Ruta del Vino, Spanish for “the Wine Trail.” The restaurant will feature dishes from multiple countries, including Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay. It’ll also serve about 20 regional wines in addition to liquors like tequila, ancho-chile, singani, and pisco. Ruta del Vino could open by next spring, at 800 Upshur St. NW.”
Godspeed Justin, Godspeed.
