A Look Back at the Week …. Mormon Church Update, Beer for District Taco, Roof Top Dining for Rose’s Luxury
by Larry Janezich
Mormon Church Update
The reason for the stalled construction of the Church of the Latter Day Saints at 522 7th Street, SE, is the Church’s decision to change contractors for reasons unknown. According to ANC6b Commissioner Phil Peisch, construction is likely to start up in the next couple of weeks and once work starts, it will be 16 months until completion.
ANC6b Approves Liquor License for District Taco
District Taco will soon include beer among its beverage offerings – likely within weeks. Company policy is to serve one beer per person and absolutely no more than two. The casual dining fast food restaurant is located at 656 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE and will serve beer from 11:00am until closing. Hours are Monday – Friday, 7:00am until 10:00pm and Saturday – Sunday from 9:00am until 10:00pm.
ANC6b approves roof garden dining for 8-10 people for Rose’s Luxury, the family style restaurant opening at 717 8th Street on Barracks Row in about two weeks. The owner agreed to erect a wooden fence at least 6 feet high to provide a sight barrier at the rear of the roof garden and protect the privacy of neighbors across the alley.
Hot Food Deli at South East Market
ANC6b approved a new fast food establishment within South East Market at 1500 Independence Avenue, SE. The owner will expand the cold sandwich deli line to serve hot sandwiches, fried fish, chicken, and French fries.
Curbside Cupcakes Coming to 257 15th Street, SE
