Mexican/Salvadoran restaurant El Atardecer opening in old DC Fish Carryout space (eventually)

You may recall DC Fish Carryout -- the place at 14th and Otis that was busted as a front for crack dealers. The owner and two others either plead guilty or were convicted, and it's been closed for some time. But now something else is coming in.

The other day I spotted a liquor license application in the window and some work going on. It seems the place is going to be called El Atardecer and they're planning for 60 seats and 29 patio seats. It'll have Mexican and Salvadoran food. There isn't much else more than that, but we should hear more in the next few months as they go through the alcohol board process.

Considering that I've heard and seen very little about the place, it may be aimed more at the Latin American community in the neighborhood, like some of the other spots on that stretch of 14th Street.
