1437 11th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

This sign went up a few weeks ago in a long-empty storefront next to Asian American 2 and across from Veranda on 11th Street NW near Logan Circle. Any word on what will be coming in?”

This is the mom and pop restaurant and take out coming to the former dollar store at 11th and P St, NW. Looking forward to learning more – stay tuned!

  • That whole strip is so weird. How are those disastrous condos coming?

      They haven’t tumbled down yet, so…

      I live in this area, and I couldn’t give a cohesive description of what’s happening here if you paid me. I’d say it’s a place you live, not a place to go to be out and about—unless, of course, you like frequenting random restaurants and watching groups of hostel-goers get hopelessly lost looking for the monuments.

        This part of Logan/Shaw is IMHO one of the best places to live in the District. You’re a couple of blocks from Citymarket at O (with the new Giant and Convivial, etc.), the new bars and restaurants coming in on 9th St. NW, and blocks from the bustling 14th Street corridor. Plus if you work downtown, you can easily walk to work.

          I didn’t mean to sound derisive—I love this area. One of the other perks is that it feels removed—even if only by a block or so—from the hustle. 11th is a busy street, but it’s not a complete pile up of pedestrians and cars and tourists and bar patrons and lines to get into the Trader Joe’s for God only knows what reason*.

    Apparently this is owned by the same folks as Mi Benedicion at 1119 N St. Anybody know the deal with that place?

    If this doesn’t work out then maybe the owner could get a job with Metro. We need someone who can make the trains run on time.
