“Dear PoPville,

Since there were some recent questions on the progress of Jackie Greenbaum’s new venture on 14th St., Little Cocos, I thought I’d send along this picture from this afternoon. Looks like they’re building a roof deck (which looks similar to El Chuchos’).”

Back in January we learned that Jackie’s was closing at the end of March:

The closure is intended to coincide with the opening of Greenbaum’s new Italian restaurant, Little Coco’s, due to open in Petworth DC in the spring. Chef Adam Harvey will be the Executive Chef of the new restaurant, which will serve modern Italian cuisine ranging from creative pizzas to regional dishes. Most of the kitchen and service staff from Jackie’s will relocate to Little Coco’s. “We’re passing the torch from Jackie’s to Little Coco’s,” said Greenbaum, “and bringing the creativity we were known for at Jackie’s to Italian cuisine.”

As for the planned roof deck: “It’ll be a three season roof deck just like they have at El Chucho.”

    This place is going to crush it. With all of the condo developments recently finished and with at least three more planned, this section of upper 14th St is set to explode. It already such great places like Red Derby, Lyman’s Tavern and Taqueria Habenero, but it’s lacking in restaurants. Huge untapped potential here… Hope Little Coco’s draws others to the area!

      Where are the three more planned? (I know of one on 14th at Spring in the old Carolina’s el palacio del sabor)

    I complimented the guys working there this morning on the wonderful ice fishing shack they added to the front of the building.

    This will really be another nice draw and good for business all around. Also, all of my wife’s NJ people will love having Italian within walking distance.

    It will be interesting to see the change in the neighborhood once residents start moving into all the new buildings that are all basically complete already: the one halfway down the block on Quincy, the large building where the 7-11 is now open, the smaller building across from Red Derby, as well as the recently-announced developments at Spring and 14th and at Carolinas. That’s like 75 NEW full time residents in this small stretch. It will be a great little community with a lot of foot traffic.
