3110 Mt Pleasant Street, NW
[Scene: I violently tear my shirt.]
Noticed on my walk to work this morning that the construction outside San Miguel Pupuseria on Mt. Pleasant street seems to be more than the patio. I knew the ice cream shop [Mount Desert Island Ice Cream] was going in up top but I thought San Miguel would stay in business in the basement.
Place looks cleared out now. No “open” sign or anything. Such a shame. Best pupusas in the city.”
Ed. Note: I’m very sorry to say that when I tried to call to confirm, their phone had been disconnected. Mount Pleasant will not be the same.
Quite the microcosm here. Perhaps nothing really better captures how D.C. is changing today than San Miguel closing and Pearl Plum opening. Not to mention Mount Desert Island Ice Cream opening…
