Haley asks: “does anyone know what the old Pret on Penn Ave near the Capitol is going to be??? The turquoise trim has me hoping it will be the Santa Rosa’s revival

Austin shares from the Capitol Hill BID:

“An authentic Mexican taqueria, located on Capitol Hill, run by the Mendelsohn family – parents Harvey and Cathy and siblings Spike and Micheline Mendelsohn.

Featuring agua frescas, margaritas, ice cold beers and delicious Mexican tacos prepared by Chefs using authentic Mexican ingredients and the highest quality products. Enjoy an El Pastor or Carne Asada with a draft beer in a fun atmosphere that takes you to Mexico city.”
