At last night’s ANC 1B Transportation Committee, the owners of the Florida Avenue Grill presented a proposal for an outdoor cafe and sought an endorsement from the committee — which they ultimately received. It will need to be reviewed by the full ANC prior to becoming official.

Imar Hutchins, who has owned the grill since 2005, presented his plan that would included four two-tops along the Florida Avenue side of the building and a larger area along 11th Street that would include four four-tops and a twelve seat community table (see plan below) — for a total of 36 additional seats.

The Florida Avenue Grill has been in business since 1944, and you can read their history from the Grill’s Web site. The addition of a sidewalk cafe should only be a positive for both the restaurant and the surrounding community.
