December 17, 2015

800-802 Upshur Street(Future site of Ruta Del Vino, 8th and Upshur Street, NW)

800-802 Upshur Street, NW, was recently placarded for a liquor license application for Ruta Del Vino, a new restaurant and wine bar coming to the Petworth community. The eatery will be serving Latin American cuisine, wine, cocktails, and bear. The application includes an entertainment endorsement for flamenco guitar. The total occupancy is 141 with seating for 76 inside and a sidewalk cafe seating 20.

Upshur Street has certainly come into its own and its nice to see it continue to grow. I’m really looking forward to this addition to the strip.
