Provost, a restaurant that has been in the works for a few years on the 2100 block of Rhode Island Ave NE has applied for a liquor license. We first heard about Provost from this Rhode Island Avenue NE Insider post back in 2013. At the time, the concept was a health conscious menu with vegetarian options and a rooftop deck. The last news we heard about it was April 2015 when it was a topic at an ANC 5C 07 meeting. Hopefully things are finally moving forward. From the liquor license application:
A new restaurant serving traditional American cuisine. Seating capacity of 87 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 100. Roof Top Summer Garden with 48 seats. The License will include an
Entertainment Endorsement for the inside of the premises only.
The application requests liquor sales and permission for live entertainment Sunday through Thursday 8 am – 2 am, Friday and Saturday 8 am 3 am for the indoors and liquor sales Sunday through Thursday 8 am – 2 am, Friday and Saturday 8 am 3 am on the rooftop deck. Provost will be located at 2129 Rhode Island Avenue, N.E.
