Long-awaited Hikari Sushi & Sake Bar, soon to be located at 644 H Street NE, is in the process of getting final approval for their liquor license and should open relatively soon. Hopefully this will alleviate the ludicrous 45 minute waits at Sticky Rice on Tuesdays.
Unfortunately, as far as Le Grenier (upcoming French bistro at 502 H Street) goes, it’s all crickets and tumbleweed. Nothing new to report.
The reviled “grocery” store, Murry’s, has been sold and the lot will surprisingly transform into something luxury condo-ish. Who woulda thunk it?
Apparently our lovely First Lady was dining at Sticky Rice on Friday night. Yeah, H Street! [H Street Great Street]
Looks like a fresh coat of paint has been applied to 414 H, future home of Boundary Road. While there has been some murky confusion as to whether this place will be just a bar, or a restaurant, or both (woo hoo!), it’ll bring a much needed option to the western end of the strip.
Speaking of fresh paint, the three properties adjacent to Ethiopic on the other side of the 400 block have been nicely renovated. Bring on the commerce!
