Pho 14 for Adams Morgan

1769 Columbia Rd NW will house Pho 14
The Pizza Hut at 1769 Columbia Road NW closed last fall with little fan fare. In two words: not missed. The space has been vacant since. Recently there has been activity and I always get curious when the windows decide to paper themselves, obscuring views inside. Sure enough, a DCRA Building Postcard Permit soon followed. The listed applicant: Tommy Hoang, the founder of Pho 14 in Columbia Heights. Hmmmmm....

CityPaper confirmed it yesterday: Pho 14 is coming to Adams Morgan. Great news for those of you in that neighborhood; and all of us in Mount Pleasant, too. This is not to diminish the original Pho 14 location on Columbia Road. I love that place! And it will be closer to me than the new location.

Sakuramen (so awesome, btw) and Mellow Mushroom precede Pho 14 in a mini wave of new restaurants coming on line as the 18th St streetscape project winds down. I have no doubts that a Vietnamese/pho restaurant as good as Pho14 will thrive in this location. Good luck!
