Bistro 18 Getting Close?

Bistro 18, a new eatery in Adams Morgan, appears to be inching closer towards opening. They just installed new signage above the space at 2420 18th St NW. Oya's Mini Bazaar was the previous tenant. 

Bistro 18 will be what I would describe as a nice sit down restaurant, but they also bill themselves as a lounge and coffee bar, too. And add to that, a forum for artists and their various media. They keep an active and oft-updated Facebook page with great photos. It really appears that they are ready to go and are waiting on paperwork, permitting and the like. 

The website has me pretty excited with specials like half price bottle of wine nights and free meals on your birthday. Sweet. No specifics on the menu, but the mention of quinoa pilaf on the website is a plus for me. Maybe they'll sneak in a  few vegan dishes. Cool to have a classier sit down spot open on 18th. Good luck Bistro 18 folks.
