"DC Noodles" "Stem"

On July 1, DC Noodles will close for one year while work gets underway on JBG's Louis residential-commercial complex at 14th and U Streets NW. When owner Sak Pollert reopens he will use the space occupied by Stem to increase the size of the restaurant. (Luis Gomez Photos)

From Luis Gomez. Catch his photos on Picplz and at One Photograph A Day. Follow him on Twitter @LuisGomezPhotos.

The popular U Street eatery DC Noodles will close for one year on July 1 as construction on the huge JBG Cos. project, the Louis, takes off at the southwest corner of 14th and U Streets NW. According to DC Noodles owner Sak Pollert, the restaurant has a tentative reopening date of July 1, 2013. Pollert also owns the next-door boutique, Stem, which will not reopen next year. (See Plans Unveiled for the Louis at 14th/U; Will Remake Famous Corner.)

“We will use the Stem space to increase the size of DC Noodles,” Pollert said. He also owns Rice Restaurant on 14th Street NW. Pollert said Stem’s closing sale begins Tuesday, with 40% to 60% off all merchandise. The two businesses are at 1412 U Street NW.

Utopia has already temporarily closed their doors due to construction work on the Louis. The 24/7 coffee shop has relocated to the northwest corner of 15th and U Streets NW under the name Mediterranean (former site of Love Cafe). However, Coppi’s Organic Restaurant will be able to stay open during the work. Certain buildings with historic facades, including the former El Paraiso restaurant building on 14th, the McDonald’s at the corner, and the stretch of buildings on U Street — the former 24/7, DC Noodles/Stem, Coppi’s Organic and Utopia — are being preserved and incorporated into the Louis complex.

DC Noodles Menu at Rice

Pollert said that beginning July 1 the DC Noodles menu will be available at selected times at Rice, 1608 14th Street NW. “The DC Noodles menu will be available at Rice every day for lunch, and Sunday through Thursday for dinner,” said Pollert.

“We are looking forward to reopening DC Noodles next year. We love being a part of the U Street community,” said Pollert.

The Louis will have nine floors (seven floors on the southern end of the 14th Street side) and 268 rental units, with a mix of floor plans that includes studio apartments up to two-bedroom units –and several penthouse units on the top floor. The three-level underground parking garage will have 40 spaces for retail customers and 110 units for tenants of the rental building.
