Libertine, Mediterranean Spot Get Signage

Two new additions to Adams Morgan each added new signage recently.

The Mediterranean Spot has new electronic signage at 2421 18th Street NW. This was originally a Caribou Coffee, installed after the completion of the Adams Station Condos in 2003. After Caribou closed, the space sat vacant, save for a bit of activity in 2010 (amounted to nothing) and a brief occupancy by a special Adams Morgan Cherry Blossom pop-up shop in 2011. Mediterraneans Spot currently has a location on U Street and is most known for shawarma and falafel.

Toledo Lounge was one of my first hang outs in DC. Loved that place. After nearly 20 years of operation, they closed last year in favor of a major renovation and re-branding. They have yet to open  but the new name is clear: Libertine. Looking forward to the new venture, although I thought Toledo was pretty close to perfect as is. No word on an opening date. Libertine is located at 2435 18th Street NW.
