1314 9th Street, NW

From the owners of 1314 1/2 9th Street, NW:

“We at 1314 1/2 Inc. are thrilled to announce that a corporation formed by Can Yurdagul of Sushi Capitol and Sushi Ogawa has leased the former Seasonal Pantry space at 1314 1/2 9th St NW as of May 1. Can found our space through a PoPville post and though sushi had never crossed our minds as a tenant we believe it is a perfect fit in that quirky space which he plans to use to its fullest. We have talked at length about what is missing on the street and much of the conversation was based on the comment section of the PoPville post citing a lack of Sunday, daytime, fast breakfast and lunch, etc. options, all gaps he plans to fill. I cannot speak as to his exact opening date but work is happening within. Stay tuned.”

Ed. Note: City Paper reports: “The restaurant is currently undergoing some cosmetic upgrades and is set to open in the next two to three weeks.”

    Can’t wait for chef Aoki’s arrival! I hope they do to go sushi so I can grab some, take it next door to A&D and enjoy it with my cocktail

      A traditional Japanese breakfast doesn’t look that different than lunch/dinner — fish, rice, and miso soup.

    Seems like a perfect fit. This is great!

    Hi. Lisa the landlord here. Props to PoPville Dan for not releasing the info sooner- he sat on it for a month at my request, waiting for Can to get his ducks in a row. Also the pop-up sign in the photo directs people to the fun/business my friend and I are having/doing with what was a Seasonal Pantry storage space. Shameless plug- it’s a 250 sf white space with bath, 11′ ceilings, gallery track lighting, available for a monthly rental of $1500/mo. Can be for artist, product intro, market test, demo, classes, or like we’re doing, an estate sale of our stuff. We have an artist booked for June- Sossa from Iceland, with the Icelandic Embassy hosting the opening, and the Icelandic Ambassador Geir Haarde welcoming Sossa on site and viewing the show. See, fun!
