    I would have preferred “Maximilian”.

    But can I get a free glass of wine in exchange for a parking ticket?

    This isn’t the same as the former “Slum Historique” building, right? Just painted similar colors and a block or two away?

    • No Slum Historique was at Rhode Island Ave. This is much further south.

      slum historique is Barber of Hell’s Bottom if I’m not mistaken

      • that is correct

        • I KNOW Shaw

          This is the old Aziz’s coffee shop.

          • Yes, it says that in the post: “This is the former Piassa and Azi’s Cafe space.” We are not talking about this space we are talking about slum historique.

    This has changed over a couple times as mentioned. Not sure a wine bar is the answer as there’s not much space inside – don’t exactly take a glass of wine to go. I think a good fast casual spot – but it seems that’s a business sector people in DC overthink, particularly in this area. Everyone tries to make something SO unique (see Cho-Ku or what not), that it doesn’t attract the quantity of people a place like this needs to churn through.
    Put in a Chipotle spin-off/taco place, Sweetgreen spinoff, etc, I bet it’d do quite well.

      I personally like a good wine bar, but La Jambe is pretty close to here and never seems too packed. Hopefully, both can make it.

    Does that logo scream copyright infringement for Madewell (the store on 14th Street) to anyone else?
