From Nando’s Peri Peri:
“After an extensive two-month renovation, Nando’s PERi-PERi will fire up its grills again near Dupont Circle (1210 18th Street, NW) starting Wednesday, February 20th, at 11am.
After 10 years of operation in a stately, historic building, the 18th Street Nando’s was ready for a major revamp. Today, the restaurant features a new kitchen, draft beer taps and beautifully re-designed dining areas. The customer take-out experience has been vastly improved, with a grab-and-go beverage refrigerator and a convenient order pick-up area near the host stand.
“Every Nando’s is uniquely designed with earthy textures and bright colors that reflect its sunny African heritage,” said John Fisher, CEO of Nando’s PERi-PERi North America. “Our Dupont location in no exception and is now truly ready for its closeup.”
South African artisans have created handmade furniture for the Dupont Nando’s and unique lighting, including woven pendant lights fabricated from recycled clothing. In addition, the restaurant features original works of art from South African artists. With thousands of pieces 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.
To celebrate the patience of its hungry fans during the revamp, Nando’s will hold a “Dash” on Thursday, March 7th, and offer succulent PERi-PERi chicken and other entrees, for free. Any customer who dashes to Nando’s Dupont for lunch on March 7 from 11am-1pm will be treated to spicy flame-grilled chicken for free, for either eat-in or carryout guests.“
