LEASED October 2020
4500 s.f. fully built out restaurant in Dupont Circle with extra wide frontage facing Connecticut Avenue, with folding windows that completely open the restaurant to the street. Completely up-to-date restaurant, recently closed, with walk-in coolers, parking (4 spaces), plentiful storage, a large mezzanine for private dining and events, built-in bar, sidewalk patio facing Connecticut Avenue, and very large, column-free interior space for dining. Exceptional opportunity to obtain a well designed restaurant with no key fee in a neighborhood that has both day and evening traffic, with very good street visibility. 1727 Connecticut sits across the street from Bistro du Coin, one DC's venerable restaurant institutions, which has for decades attracted a regional crowd.
Dupont Circle has an unusually strong day and night mix, with office buildings surrounded by DC's most picturesque streets and homes. The block to the south is home to DC's largest farmers market and one of its busiest Metro stations.
Home to Larimer's liquor store and market from 1894 until the 1990's, the store was one of the longest continuing operating markets in DC's history, selling specialty and ultimately organic and free-range food before the terms entered the food industry vernacular, and sold to an investment group composed of DC's institutional names: Boggs, Proxmire, Ledecky and Schwartz. The building retains its historic shape, having been spared from redevelopment.
