There is a liquor license application in the window for the space at 1541 14th Street NW — presently the site of Well Built Furniture. The application is from Thaddeus Curtz, one of  the owners of Standard BBQ, at the northeast corner of 14th and S Streets NW. Curtz, the operating partner of Standard BBQ, was unavailable for comment or additional details.

However, Curtz did confirm to DC food blogger/writer Russell Warnick on Friday that he has applied for a license for the space. A hat tip to Warnick for his Friday tweet (@russellwarnick) on the application notice in the window. The notice went up Friday; the hearing at the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) is February 21.

The application (photo at right) states under Nature of Operation:

“New restaurant with Italian cuisine and recorded background music. Capacity is 85. Total Occupancy is 105. Sidewalk Cafe with seating of 20 patrons.”

Ann Blackwell opened the high-end specialty furniture store, Well Built, in April 2010 in what was formerly Candida’s World of Books. (See Tom Hay’s profile from December 2010, Well Built: Style Meets Sustainability on 14th Street.) Blackwell was not available for comment regarding her plans for the store.
