Little Coco's, Italian spot from El Chucho folks on 14th Street, opens Thursday!

Good news for Italian food lovers, fans of El Chucho and folks in northern Columbia Heights: Little Coco's, the long-awaited Italian version of the popular El Chucho, is opening tomorrow, Sept. 8. The other day some folks posted about a soft opening, and now it's official. They're located at 3907 14th Street NW, just north of Randolph in the old Rib Pit Lounge space.

The spot, from the team that also runs Quarry House in Silver Spring and Bar Charley on 18th, will have pizzas, pasta dishes, salads and Italian snacks, cheeses, cured meats like salami,  as well as reasonably priced cocktails, beers and wines.

They've been posting with some pizza varieties on Facebook and they sound pretty excellent: Tallegio cheese, prosciutto, pears, b├ęchamel sauce; Asparagus, ricotta, quail egg, black summer truffle; Eggplant, cherry tomato, anchovy, smoked mozzarella, ramp pesto and more.

They'll also have coffee and pastries in the morning, something sorely needed in that area.

They have a layout similar to El Chucho with a patio, an open second floor and a bar inside with 90 seats on the first floor, 58 on the second and 32 in the patio.

Check out below for more pizza shots, plus an in-progress interior view.
