The Municipal Deli at the Reeves Center may not be around too much longer. Washington City Paper tells us that Fitwi “John” Tekeste, the owner is almost $350,000 behind in his rent payments — though Tekeste claims that there was a deal struck with the Williams administration for renovations he performed on the space, which stalled during Fenty’s tenure. The Department of Real Estate Services has had enough, and plans to force Tekeste out by Feburary 21. I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear from Tekeste on this matter though.
