In the upcoming months the east side of the 1500 block of 7th Street NW will be undergoing a dramatic transformation.
"After years of being a vacant blight in the community, the building at 1547 - 7th St will be transformed into a world renowned restaurant. A lease has been signed with chef Richard Sandoval's restaurant group." says Kevin L. Chapple, Commissioner, ANC 6E02 in an email to residents. The restaurant will be a "casual Mexican concept with carryout," reported Zagat.
