The restaurant is coming to 3907 14th Street in the old Rib Pit Lounge space, and will be an Italian version of El Chucho. Previously we heard they'll have antipasti, pizza, entrees and homemade pasta dishes, as well as frozen negronis, Italian shaved ice, lots of affordable Italian wine, beer and other cocktails. Previously we heard that pizzas may include olive-oil poached tuna and artichokes, snails and garlic, and butternut squash with pear and taleggio cheese.
The floor plan is similar to El Chucho with a bar downstairs and most of the seating upstairs, which will be partially outside and partially inside, for 70 seats total.
I'm definitely looking forward to it.
Greenbaum and her group run El Chucho on 11th Street NW, as well as cocktail spot Bar Charley on 18th Street and the Quarry House in Silver Spring.
Here's one of the possible pizzas from their Facebook page. The above photo is from a few months ago.
