Been getting a few messages about this over the last couple weeks. Most recently TJ reports:

“looks like they took down all the Choong Man branding from the windows. Dont know whats going on with the menu, if they still have chicken. I am fascinated by the constant concept overhauls over the last few years…”

Anyone know if they still have chicken? sushi?

Victoria reports:

“I was lamenting last week about The Heights becoming a sports bar – but now have some great updates. Most spectacularly – they now offer sushi! With a real (as far as I could tell – he came out to thank me last night for ordering it) Japanese sushi chef. I just had one roll, but it was really good. This is the one thing we’ve been longing for in Columbia Heights, and probably enough for me to put up with all the football screens.

Also, the bar will not be totally gone. It will be smaller to make room for the self-serve beer taps, but still at least there. For the self-serve beer taps, you will buy a card – like at Kinkos – and do some computer-thingy voodoo taps to count your pours. The idea is that you can taste a few ounces of various brews.

Whatever – I’m just excited that we finally have sushi!”

A reader reports:

The Heights was sold last Tuesday. Early word is that the new owner intends to turn the space into a sports bar. The inside will be redone. The bar will be removed and replaced with 30 self-serve beer taps. Much of the seating will be replaced with standing bar tables. Giant screen TVs will line the walls. Menu will be eclectic, to include pizza and crab hot pots.”

“Dear PoPville,

The Heights used to have a great happy hour – 3-7 every day with rail drinks $4.00. But they just raised the happy hour prices to $6.00! Worse than that, I was told it was still actually a good deal because non-happy-hour rail drinks are now $9.00! Seriously? Guess it’s time to abandon my favorite pub and walk a few blocks to one of the many other bars in the neighborhood.”

Yesterday’s scuttlebutt about The Heights being sold has been confirmed. From a press release:

“The Heights, Columbia Heights’ neighborhood restaurant, is set to change owners by the start of 2015, with the concept to remain intact. Having gone under contract earlier this week to local restaurateur Ammar Daoud, the deal will transpire once license transfers are complete. Daoud, who has over 20 years of experience operating casual dining brands in the U.S. and internationally, plans to keep the restaurant operational as the neighborhood-centric place it has been for the past seven years, with all staff remaining.

The Heights is currently under the ownership of EatWell DC, which owns and operates four other neighborhood restaurant concepts: The Pig, Logan Tavern, Commissary and Grillfish. Upon completion of the contract’s transfers, EatWell DC will focus on these restaurants as well as explore future endeavors within Washington, D.C. A priority remains growing its produce farm, EatWell Natural Farm, located in La Plata, Maryland.

The Heights’ eclectic American fare and emphasis on locally sourced, fresh ingredients and craft beer and cocktails will continue, but Daoud’s vision does include a menu update in the future and to create a more alfresco dining experience. The Heights will continue to honor EatWell gift certificates through March 31, 2015, and this year’s New Year’s Eve offerings will remain as previously publicized.”
