New Restaurant Could Rise on Adams Morgan Parking Lot

Adams Morgan’s newest eatery could take shape on a plot of land currently used as a parking lot.

A developer called “Jurassic Properties” has filed plans to construct a new restaurant at 2009 18th St. NW, according to a Historic Preservation Review Board public notice a Borderstan reporter spotted yesterday. The plot of land is currently used as a parking lot for Dupont restaurant Lauriol Plaza.

Though it’s unclear exactly what the new restaurant would entail, a representative for the company that owns Lauriol Plaza (and Cleveland Park’s Cactus Cantina) said a new “American restaurant” was in the works at that address but didn’t elaborate.

We’ll update this story if we learn more about the plans.

    I’m sure that’s a historical lot somehow. Besides, we can’t have buildings in that land taller than a 90’s Honda Civic as it will block views, go against the neighborhood, be gentrifying, and because the ANC just doesn’t wanna!!!

    Yup. I’m just waiting for the ANC to oppose this for some bogus reason.
