“Italian deli/fresh pasta to go” from owners of Menomale “looks like it’s actually happening!”

12th and Evarts St, NE back in June 2014

A reader reports:

“Just wanted to share this because I’m VERY EXCITED: a friend was telling me that the owners of Menomale are opening up an Italian deli/fresh pasta to go place a few doors down from the restaurant [2711 12th Street, NE]. I was skeptical at first because it’s not the first time I’ve been told something was opening up in that space, but they’ve started doing renovations so it looks like it’s actually happening!”

Ed. Note: Back in June of last year we first heard word of Menomale’s pasta plans. Glad to hear it’s moving forward – updates as they get closer to opening.

  • FYI/clarification: the building in the photo is actually now a bakery (The Bakers Lounge, the woman who owns it is an absolute delight and her cupcakes are very very good) – the deli is going to be in the ground floor retail space in 2703

    • AAAAAND I just realized the address cited in the original post is the address of Menomale, NOT the building in the photo. Doy.

    I’d kill for an Italian or Jewish deli in Petworth.

    • the truth will set you free

      Don’t hold your breath…very few Jews live in central DC anymore. Same with Italians. Most are in the ‘burbs and that’s where you can find the ethnic restaurants.

    This is so incredibly exciting! Menomale is one of my favorite restaurants and I can’t wait for this place to open.

    Glad to hear they’re not renting from those landlords. They are the same ones who charged scrap DC exorbitant rent and shut it down.
