A Dupont restaurant and event space centered around wholesome Indian food might add alcohol to the menu.
Pansaari (1603 17th St. NW) has applied to serve alcohol, according to a filing with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA).
The business routinely serves chai and brunch fare and also hosts community gatherings such as movie nights, cooking classes and other instructional events.
A Pansaari representative wasn’t immediately available to comment.
Another 17th Street restaurant, Dupont Italian Kitchen (1637 17th St. NW), has applied to create an outdoor seating area with room for 15 patrons, according to the ABRA filing.
The D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Board is expected to rule on both eateries’ applications in the coming months.
