“Downtown Officina Cafe?”

1615 L Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Thought this was supposed to open in April but I haven’t seen any progress. Does anyone know anything? Downtown needs a new lunch spot.”

Their website still says coming soon:

“Chef Nicholas Stefanelli brings Officina Cafe to the heart of the Washington D.C.’s bustling downtown neighborhood as he debuts the second outpost of his Wharf flagship at Carr Properties’ office building, The Hub. Tasked with re-inventing the ‘typical’ office experience, Stefanelli brings Michelin-starred, chef-driven cuisine to building tenants, employees, residents, and visiting guests.

Much like the lively streets of Italy, Officina Cafe will serve as a culinary destination for a variety of dining experiences–convenient, yet high-quality grab and go options, a full-service restaurant for those looking to settle in for a meal, or a cozy lobby bar for an afternoon aperitivo meet up. Whether the day calls for a snack, salad/sandwich, pasta, caffeine, or a refreshing cocktail, Officina Cafe sets the new standard for office amenities and residential dining in downtown DC.”
