I love Solly’s, it has been a favorite for meeting up with friends or catching a football game since I moved to the neighborhood almost five years ago.

Of course, back in the day Solly’s used to serve food – decent bar food that went well with beer. A few years ago they stopped, but now with their expansion into neighboring Madjet, Solly’s will be serving food again and hopefully gain some much needed space in the process. John Solomon, the owner, says that the renovation should take a month and couldĀ  be done as early as the end of February.

However, the question is: what is happening to Madjet? DC Eater (link above) called Madjet and the employee who answered the phone had not heard of Solly’s expansion. So we will see what happens with Madjet.

Bar Pilar

Well this is great news. Prince of Petworth reports this morning that Bar Pilar has a liquor license application to expand to the second floor of their building. I love Bar Pilar, but tend to go there on weekdays for dinner and drinks because it tends to get insufferably crowded on weekends – this will make the bar/restaurant much more tolerable when busy. Great news!
