(Updated at 3:15 p.m.) Adams Morgan is about to get a little saucier.
Red White and Basil, which bills itself as a “fresh & saucy pasta bar,” is slated to open at 1781 Florida Ave. NW “very soon,” but “not today,” a representative of the eatery tweeted this afternoon. This morning, a sign on the restaurant’s door indicated that the eatery’s opening was planned for today.
It wasn’t immediately clear what exactly the Italian restaurant will serve once it opens in the former Hans Pedr’ Kaffe space. A Red White and Basil representative wasn’t available to comment this morning, and neither the eatery’s website nor its Facebook page has a menu.
A liquor license application filed last month only said the restaurant will serve “freshly-made pasta as well as beer and wine.”
The eatery can hold tables for 17 diners inside and 20 people outside.
