Well this is exciting news for the 14th street corridor. Tom Sietsema reported in his weekly chat this morning that two new restaurants are coming to 14th street.
Sietsema says Whisk Group and Abdo Development have partnered to bring Italian Shirt Laundry, at 1601 14th St. NW (at Q street) (named after the longstanding dry cleaners that used to be at the location). Italian Shirt Laundry will be a combination pizzeria and bakery.
The second restaurant will be Italian Cinema, at 1404 14th St., NW (between P and Rhode Island), will serve pasta, charcuterie and screen Italian films on the restaurant’s roof.
The groups hope the restaurants will open sometime this year. Who’s excited?
