H Street News Round-up

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!

    Murry’s isn’t reviled by everyone–I love the convenience of getting staple grocery items and produce there. Sad to see it go! It’s worth thinking about the neighborhood value that will by lost by the closing of this local, family-owned business that’s been serving the community since the 1940s (http://www.murrys.com/about).

    I was thinking the same thign as Abigail. It is not a posh store but it feels some people’s freezers without emptying their wallets.
    Abigail you can still find some of the items at a regular grocery store so at least the name and the memories can live on.
