300-seat restaurant coming to former Eatonville/Mulebone/Ancient Rivers space at 2121 14th

Something is finally coming to the big restaurant space at 2121 14th St NW that was formerly home of Eatonville, Mulebone and Ancient Rivers, all owned by Andy Shallal of Busboys and Poets fame. 

The new spot appears to be unnamed and has applied for a liquor license. Here are the details via Helder Gil on twitter, who posted about the application.

New ABRA license for unnamed restaurant (2121 14th St NW; ANC 1B); tavern w/American food; 300 seats (!); 40-seat summer garden; live entertainment w/dancing and cover charge

Sounds more like a nightclub or music venue, which sounds good to me. That space has been cursed ever since Eatonville closed. Eatonville was a pretty tasty southern restaurant commemorating author Zora Neale Hurston and lasted five years, Mulebone was also a southern spot that lasted less and Ancient Rivers was a Middle Eastern spot that was barely open.

I’ll try to find out more details.

  1. I like this place. I was here the other night, I've been there for about four or five hours and found the prices reasonable on all fronts and the staff to be so friendly. I would be the perfect person to have on an infomercial for this venue NYC if they ever had one.
