previously 5th and K St, NW before Busboys moved across the street

Whoa thanks to a reader for passing on this info from the ANC 6E October Agenda email:

dLena (5th and K Streets)

As many of you know, we will be welcoming a new high-end modern Mexican restaurant to the Mt. Vernon Triangle next Spring, which will be led by two internationally-rated chefs who will bring world class experience and outstanding Mexican cuisine to our neighborhood. The restaurant will also have a tequila lounge in the basement where patrons may sample a variety of tequila and mezcal.

The owners are moving quickly to open by Spring of 2020, and have provided me with the attached concept renderings for the dining room and tequila lounge. This will be a great addition to our thriving community!

Silo Expansion

919 5th Street, NW

Speaking of great additions! I am pleased to report that ANC 6E and Silo have come to an agreement regarding Silo’s planned expansion of a second floor with skylights and a small balcony. As requested by neighbors who live in close proximity to the establishment, Silo has agreed to terms that include the balcony close at 11:00pm.

I want to thank Silo for agreeing to their neighbors’ request to limit the operation of the second floor balcony to 11:00pm. It is clear that they fully intend to be a good neighbor in MVT, and will no doubt continue to be a strong asset to our community. I look forward to the completion of the second floor!”
