The last time we wrote about the possibility of restaurant chain Busboys and Poets coming to our neighborhood it was February 2013. At that time all we really knew is that owner Andy Shallal was negotiating a lease on a space at Monroe Street Market. Today we learned from a Washington Post article that the deal has been finalized. The article states:
The Brookland Busboys will be a 7,400-square-foot restaurant overlooking a public square named for former Catholic University president David M. O’Connell, at the corner of Monroe Street and Michigan Avenue. It’s expected to open in the fall of 2014.
We appreciate that the Monroe Street Market team has been targeting proven, DC-based restaurants to anchor their development. Can’t wait to check the place out!
