New bar with jazz and Jamaican food, The Pitch Tavern, coming to Georgia & Taylor

Looks like another eating and drinking option is coming to southern Petworth: the Pitch, a lounge with Jamaican and American food, is coming to 4015 Georgia Ave NW, above the Petworth Laundromat.

The other day a friend and I spotted a coming soon sign and filings for permits. The bar seems to be where Leila's Restaurant used to be and will have a roof deck plus occasional music, open mic, dancing and DJs. They'll have 50 seats, plus 8 on a sidewalk cafe and 6 on a summer garden cafe (which I assume is the roof, not sure.)

They look to be open Sunday-Thursday from 7am-2am and Friday and Saturday 7am-3am -- though often those hours are reduced by the Advisory Neighborhood Commission. The 7am time is interesting, I wonder if they'll also have breakfast then.

I'm pretty excited about the Jamaican food aspect, I went on vacation to the island a few months ago and had a ton of great food -- not just jerk chicken but also soups, seafood and tasty veggie stuff.

Here's the permit notice below. Sounds interesting.
