HOUSING COMPLEX | Busboys and Poets Will Open an Anacostia Location

Go HERE for the full article.


Following months of speculation, Busboys and Poets owner Andy Shallal will announce on Wednesday that he's opening a branch of the growing restaurant and bookstore chain in Anacostia. 
Busboys, which currently has two D.C. locations, on 14th Street NW and at 5th and K streets NW, is in the midst of a major expansion, with new branches planned in Takoma and Brookland. Shallal has long targeted Anacostia, and he reportedly signed a letter of intent this spring for the space at 2004-2010 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE formerly occupied by a furniture store. 
On Wednesday, Shallal will formally announce the signing of a lease for the space at a press conference. He made the disclosure Thursday night at a dinner for housing professionals, nonprofit leaders, and reporters in Atlantic Media Company owner David Bradley's office in the Watergate.
