The agenda for ANC 3B‘s April 12 meeting just came out, and it includes an intriguing bit of new business: “Discussion of request from Bourbon [2348 Wisconsin Ave.] for letter of approval to ABRA [i.e., the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration] regarding Bourbon’s proposed expansion into the next-door lower level and patio.”
We’ve been watching Bourbon’s vacant next-door neighbor, 2352 Wisconsin Ave., for signs of life ever since Shade and Shutter Shack vacated the premises in mid-2010. And we’ve heard rumors of various potential tenants, including a therapeutic massage business that may have rented the building’s upper floors. But this is the nearest thing we’ve heard to a plan to fill this hole in an otherwise lively row of storefront restaurants.
An ABRA spokesman says the agency has not yet received an application from Bourbon to expand its serving area. A source at Bourbon has not yet responded to an email sent earlier today.
