Brookland’s Finest Update – Restaurant License Granted, Liquor License Hearing On Wednesday

It has been a while since we have had an update on Brookland’s Finest, the restaurant planning to open up at 12th and Jackson Streets, NE. Since then, quite a bit has happened:

  • The location has been granted a restaurant license, a major step forward,
  • Construction has moved forward, providing the building with a suitable roof, and an extension which will be the future kitchen,
  • The liquor license hearing will be this Wednesday, August 14th, at 4:00 pm.

An email from Jose “Joe” Barrios, the neighbor who negotiated the detailed neighborhood agreement with restaurant managers and 149 nearby neighbors sent out an email, which contained the following information about the liquor license hearing:

Neighbors.. I’m asking every possible resident to show up at the ABRA hearing next week.
PLEASE WEAR RED TO THE HEARING! We are asking all Brookland’s Finest supporters to wear something red–a shirt, a cap, whatever–so that ABRA knows at a glance who’s there supporting the restaurant.
DATE: Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
TIME: 4 PM ET   4:30 PM
ARRIVAL: Arrive early if you want seating! You must also pass through security.
LOCATION: Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA)
2000 14th Street, NW, Suite 400 South
Washington, D.C. 20009
GETTING THERE: The location is at 14th and U St NW. Parking is a challenge. The closest metro stop, a block away, is the U Street stop on the Green/Yellow line.
So there you have it folks, if you would like another dining option in the neighborhood, and would like to support a Brookland based business, I strongly enourage you to show up at the hearing Wednesday.
