The Week Ahead…. Boys and Girls Club & a New Restaurant on PA Ave?

The owner of the building housing Lustre Cleaner at 309 – 311 Pennsylvania Avenue, S.E., has applied for a voluntary environmental cleanup permit for the property and is proposing to convert it into a restaurant. The property lies between two Spike Mendelsohn restaurants – Béarnaise and We the Pizza – which have done battle with neighbors and ANC6B over rat and trash issues. The privately done environmental assessment is complete. Look for ANC6B to push hard for indoor trash storage here when the application for a liquor license comes up.
