From a press release:

“Nando’s PERi-PERi, the South African-Portuguese restaurant known worldwide for its spicy flame-grilled chicken, will celebrate its grand opening in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington on Sunday, September 11. Nando’s has transformed a vacant bank at 2631 Connecticut Avenue, NW, into a colorful and soaring dining space that embodies the Nando’s spirit.

During its grand opening day, Nando’s will donate 100% of proceeds to the nearby Oyster-Adams Bilingual School. The school’s parent-teacher organization, the Oyster-Adams Community Council, will use the funds to provide critical resources for students, including music and art education programs, and professional development for teachers.

“Opening our new restaurant in Woodley Park was not always easy, but it was absolutely worth the wait,” said Burton Heiss, CEO of Nando’s PERi-PERi USA. “Nando’s always strives to be a good neighbor, and we look forward to partnering with the Oyster-Adams Bilingual School to benefit the community.”

Nando’s is obtaining final city approvals and is likely to open to the public as early as this coming Sunday. PERi-PERi fans should sign up at http://peri.io/woodley to be first to hear about opening details.

Nando’s has built an intensely loyal following by providing fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service. Every Nando’s is painstakingly designed and completely unique, with earthy textures and bright colors that reflect its sunny African-Portuguese heritage. With thousands of pieces of original works of art that are a constant reminder of where the restaurant came from, Nando’s has become the largest collector of South African contemporary art in the world.
