More fast food is coming the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza, the triangle bounded by Park Road and Kenyon Street at 14th Street: Borderstan reports that Jimmy John's will be opening in the old Julia's Empanadas space, next to FroZenYo.
The space has been empty for some time, so it's good something is going in. What do people think of Jimmy John's? I've had them a few times downtown, they're ok. I'd prefer another sandwich place like White Apron or something, but hey, this is better than a bank, cell phone store or mattress place.
They're aiming at a spring opening. I hope this place and the new &pizza reduce some of the crowding at other places nearby like Chick-fil-A, Cava and Chipotle.
