From a press release:

“On November 5, ARC THE.HOTEL (824 New Hampshire Ave NW) will unveil the final phase of its Foggy Bottom location with an exciting new culinary concept, Notti 824.

The redesigned farm-to-table restaurant concept boasts simple dining that’s both fresh and locally sourced within a quaint dining experience. Guests will enjoy thoughtfully prepared tapas and entrees paired with a curated wine list, all set against a cozy backdrop complete with wooden table tops, earthy stone and warm tones. Notti 824, which also features a beautifully landscaped courtyard for al fresco dining, will launch with a breakfast and dinner rollout, with plans to eventually launch lunch in the future. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

The TGI Friday’s in Foggy Bottom, the only one in DC, is permanently closed now. Service was awful, food was questionable, drinks weren’t good – hmmmm, wonder why they closed?”

RIP endless potato skins in D.C. Although, maybe the Columbia Heights location will rise from the ashes. Folks would be so psyched. STAY TUNED.

“Dear PoPville,

…but it doesn’t look good. I walked by during lunchtime [Friday] and they are cleaning it out. Not sure what happened, but when they closed it appears as though they left everything in place to rot. I could smell a putrid stench wafting from the open doors and windows. Lots of bags of rotten trash and boxes of unused oil, salt and paper goods sitting along the sidewalk.”

“Dear PoPville,

Last night Lindy’s Red Lion was closed up tight!!!

Downstairs carry out Lindy’s Bon Appetit looked like maybe it’d suffered flooding or a fire, everything in disarray through window.

Foggy Bottomers know anything about this?

Joint is a needed old school counter to all that West End/Foggy Bottom development fueled options around there….”

Ed. Note: A call to the store is unanswered but that’s not completely unusual. Anyone know what’s up?

The original listing can be seen here: here.

This property was described in the listing notes by the agent as livable and in need of renovation. This is a tough scenario to price in any case. Given that there were only four fee simple (house) sales in Foggy Bottom, including the subject property, since 1 January 2018, this is an incredibly difficult house to price. (more…)
