(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.
Adams Morgan may soon have a new Italian restaurant.
A public hearing notice for a liquor license application posted on the ABRA website shows that a new restaurant, Red, White and Basil, is slated to move in at 1781 Florida Ave. NW.
According to the application, the restaurant seeks to serve “freshly-made pasta as well as beer and wine” with indoor seating for 17 and outdoor seating for 20.
The public hearing notice does not specify which suite at 1781 Florida Ave. NW the new restaurant might move into, but the space that formerly held the Hans Pedr’ Kaffe is still vacant.
