PoP reports that there's a new Mexican spot coming to 3313 11th Street NW, which is just north of Lamont and next to Arthur's convenience store. It's the short building with the garage door above.
The place will be owned by the folks who own Jackie's in Silver Spring, and they'll be working with people from the Quarry House Tavern also in SS, a spot I've heard a lot about. Supposedly it's a great neighborhood beer bar with great burgers.
The building is very narrow, as you can see above, but it goes back pretty far: but the liquor license out front says there'll be 75 seats and a total occupancy on 99 inside. There's also planned to be a sidewalk cafe with 16 seats and a summer garden (I assume in the back) of 36 people. Maybe you'll be able to check out the new North Columbia Heights Green when you sit out there!
I'm pretty happy about this, as I do like Mexican food, and the two affiliated places in Silver Spring seem like neighborhood joints, not spots where tons of people will line up and make noise. Your thoughts?
I've been sitting on info on the place for awhile (it was embargoed) but my contact didn't get back to me unfortunately. When I hear more, I'll let you know.
