2214 Rhode Island Avenue, NE


From the Brookland listserv:

“Heart broken.
Last night: December 22nd is the last day.
Just confirmed.”

Nido opened back in June 2015.

“Sampling from some of the most memorable moments during the owner’s time spent abroad, Nido is a unique neighborhood bistro with eclectic Mediterranean cuisine. It is a light, airy, yet cozy space that provides “a place to sit down” to snack and imbibe with neighbors, friends, and family.”

Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.

Ed. Note: You’ll still be able to check out Mola in Mount Pleasant from the owners of Nido.
