Long-Awaited Bakery Moves Closer to Opening in Heller’s Space
A bakery adjoined to a Columbia Heights restaurant is one step closer toward coming to Mount Pleasant.
Paisley Fig, which shares space with Room 11 at 3234 11th St. NW, has applied for a liquor license for a stand-alone location, according to a notice the D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration published this week.
Nick Pimentel, who owns Room 11 and Paisley Fig, announced last July he is planning to open the bakery in the former Heller’s Bakery space. Heller’s closed in December 2014 after more than 80 years in business.
Pimentel wasn’t immediately available to comment.
Paisley Fig is set to sport a “full service restaurant and bakery” in Mount Pleasant, according to the ABRA paperwork.
It wasn’t immediately clear when the new restaurant will open.
