Las Placitas To Re-locate to Lower 8th Street At Year’s End
by Larry Janezich
Capitol Hill Corner has confirmed that Las Placitas, the popular Barracks Row Restaurant, will relocate to lower 8th Street, SE, opposite the Navy Yard by year’s end. According to management, Las Placitas will take over the long empty space once occupied by a Quizno outlet at 8th and M Streets, SE.
Capitol Hill Corner broke the story on May 13 that Las Placitas’ lease would not be renewed in in the fall in order to make way for expansion of the adjacent Matchbox Restaurant. See here: http://bit.ly/1PGDwuO
The promise of development of lower 8th Street, south of the freeway has been slow in coming. Las Placitas may be the catalyst that brings fulfillment of that promise.
