2136 to 2140 Wisconsin AveFrom the May 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The vacant lot at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. (a few doors up from Café
Romeo’s) will become a “very nice, top-of-the-line” condominium
building within a year, according to local developer Zak
Elyasi. The lot—hidden for years behind a construction fence—was
recently purchased by Elyasi’s parents, Abdul and Ramzia Elyasi of
Greensboro, North Carolina. Son Zak, managing member of Raz Development,
says plans are in the works to construct a residential building
that may include ground-floor commercial space. The development
group hopes to begin foundation work within the next month or two
and complete the building in the spring of 2014.

The family recently completed a project in Columbia Heights that
yielded two spacious luxury condo units, Zak says. Asked whether the
Glover Park building’s façade would be as close to the sidewalk as its
blocky beige neighbor at 2136 Wisconsin Ave., he replied that while
final plans have not yet been drawn, “it’s going to look nicer than that
beige building.”

The lot’s previous owner, Davar Ashgrizzadeh—who also owns
Café Romeo’s—bought the property in 2008 for $995,000 and sold it on
March 22 for $1,250,000, according to city land records.

A good deed went briefly punished on November 11, after Davar Ashgrizzadeh, owner of Café Romeo’s (2132 Wisconsin Ave.), lent his Toyota Land Cruiser to a homeless man to sleep in. The following morning, the vehicle was missing from the restaurant’s parking lot, and Ashgrizzadeh called police. Soon enough, the vehicle was located and returned to its owner. “We got it back; it wasn’t stolen,” says Ashgrizzadeh. “Somebody who wasn’t authorized to use it was using it.” He declined to elaborate further.

The local chain, which boasts of hearty meals at good value, joins neighbors Café Romeo’s at 2132 Wisconsin (offering lavash rolls and free delivery) and Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub at 2400 Wisconsin (with a full Italian menu and bar) in striving to meet your pizza needs.

An Angelico’s exec had told us previously that the restaurant—which also delivers—would serve beer and wine, but Misirci says he has no immediate plans to do so.
