Prompted by a discussion in the comments to last week's post about progress on the Logan Row condominiums, I did a little digging for information about the restaurant coming to the southwest corner of 11th and P Streets. I learned that the owners of Mt. Pleasant's popular Heller's Bakery are opening a Mediterranean restaurant at 1100 P Street to be named Veranda (interim Veranda website viewable here). According to their website, they "hope to provide a pleasant place where all the neighbours will meet for a coffee, a mezze, a tapa, a beer or an ouzo." Sounds like it could be great!
Construction on the space is ongoing, albeit slowly. They have reportedly almost finished the plumbing, electrical, and mechanical work. After those components are complete, they will close the walls and place the equipment. A renewed liquor license application is posted on the exterior. The target opening date is May 1.
