Busboys and Poets Coming to CityVista

I was tipped off by a commenter here that the Washington Business Journal reports in its print edition this week that Busboys and Poets is opening a location in CityVista (here is the article, accessible to paid WBJ subscribers only). This makes the nearby CityVista retail line up even more impressive. This also probably blows my dream of a Busboy's opening closer to me on 9th! Oh well, CityVista's close enough, and I'll keep holding out hope for a Matchbox-esque pizza place, a bagel place, a wine bar, a Diner/Tryst place, and numerous types of retail opening on my beloved street.

I think the article said the owners of Busboys and Poets are putting a new restaurant in City Vista...but not named Busboys & Poets...I don't think they gave a description of what type of a restaurant it would be...great news either way though...

This is GREAT news! I can't wait for all the CityVista stuff to be finished. I do wish the offshoots of Busboys & Poets would all have different names, though, so it would seem less chain-like. Still, even if it is a chain, it's a very local one, so I won't complain. It will be a cool addition to CityVista!

Busboys is on an expansion tear! In addition to Cityvista, they are also opening a new location thats part of EYA's "Hyattsville Arts District" up Rt 1. Did this all start with their location on U St? Or did they already have other locations?

if it's andy shallal who has signed this lease, he owns more than just busboys and poets. while that has certainly become his most 'buzzed' about space, there is also mimi's and the luna grill in dupont. in addition, i've heard that he plans to open a restaurant in shirlington also. none of this means, of course, that they will all be busboys and poets clones. in fact, i would expect that the name would most likely not travel to other locations, because the name is perfect currently for the building they are in (the langston).
