Neighbors Question Taste and Appropriateness of Proposed Barracks Row Mural
by Larry Janezich
Tash and Nooshi co-owner Vanessa Lin will make a presentation on the proposed mural, pictured above, at Tuesday night’s ANC6B meeting at 7:00pm in Hill Center. Nearby residential neighbors have expressed their displeasure about the mural to their ANC6B representative, Kirsten Oldenburg. “Taste aside, we believe the mural is ill-suited for our historic Capitol Hill neighborhood,” said one concerned neighbor.
The building at 524 8th Street, SE, formerly occupied by Chateaux Animaux, currently houses Tash House of Kabob, run by Lin’s husband, Nariman Modanlou, on its first floor. A second floor restaurant, Nooshi (noodles and sushi) will be run by Lin and is scheduled to open at the end of March. The couple owns two other similar restaurants – the original Nooshi downtown, and Moby Dick House of Kabob in Ashburn.
