Mystery of J’s Steaks Replacement Solved at 14th and U

1939 14th Street, NW

J’s Steaks closed back in November. The space is going to become a Capital One Bank according to a building permit posted out front.

Ed. Note: The address also included 1947 14th so maybe it’s taking over the whole corner (that is also vacant?):

    Was this Islamabad late 90’s early 2000s?

    So happy to see that Cricket close. Such a prominent corner and the building always looked so poorly maintained. I’m fine with Capital One if they repaint any other color than that ugly brownish.

    Remember when this was a dry cleaners? Weren’t they the ones who closed with no notice, and just pushed the racks to the sidewalk for folks to “claim”?
    Personally, I find a bank a meh addition

      No that was next door on the corner. I even made WaPo complaining about it.
