Slim's Diner applies for liquor license, looking to open this summer

I hope you enjoyed my April Fool's posts yesterday -- now it's back to the real stuff.

Slim's Diner, the much-anticipated new spot coming to the neat old Murrell Building at Georgia and Upshur, is making a lot of progress. They're documenting it on their Facebook page, and one of the biggest steps is now underway -- they've applied for a liquor license. They're aiming for a late summer opening.

The spot, if you recall, is owned by Paul Ruppert and co., of Room 11, Petworth Citizen, Crane & Turtle and Upshur Street Books fame. That crew is really turning Upshur Street into a bustling neighborhood hub, and they have some more plans too, like Bad Saint, a Filipino restaurant coming to 11th Street next to Room 11 (more on that soon.)

Slim's will have traditional diner food along with cocktails and beer -- sounds like a great brunch spot. A few months ago, they also held a survey collecting what people were looking for in decor, seating, and so on -- finding, for example, that most people didn't want TVs.

Slim's Diner is at 4201 Georgia Avenue NW. Here's the building from Google Street View.
