New coffee shop and deli coming to 3661 Georgia, old Amanuel Market


Looks like a new coffee shop and deli is coming to the area: I saw permits in the window at 3661 Georgia Avenue NW, just south of New Hampshire, the old Amanuel Market, a convenience store. The market was busted for selling synthetic drugs in 2015 and closed sometime after that. The owner also applied for a liquor license in 2011 but the ANC opposed it.

The permit says there will be food prep and coffee with 11 seats. I can't find much else more about it, interested to see if it's going to be a hip spot, a deli with coffee in those pour yourself things, or something else.

Here's the full permit text. Some places have coffee machines on the counter but they're for the staff to use, so we'll see.

USE CHANGE FROM CONVENIENCE STORE WITH ACCESSORY PREPARED FOOD SHOP TO FOOD PREPARATION AND COFFEE SHOP. BY KEEPING THE EXISTING MECHANICAL , ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING AS IS WITH THE ADDITION OF ADA COMPLIANCE HANDICAP ACCESS BATHROOM, THREE COMPARTMENT SINK , UNDER COUNTER FREEZER AND COFFEE BREWING MACHINES ON THE COUNTER. 
PREOPARED FOOD SHOP WITH 11 SEATS ON THE 1ST FLOOR, CELLAR FOR STORAGE ONLY. NO MECHANICAL WORK WILL BE ADDED ON THE ROOF.
