Before build-out, Busboys & Poets applies for ABRA license

Old Bowling Alley Facade -- no more plywoodBefore the re-zoning and build-out of the otherworldly hyped Anacostia franchise of Busboys & Poets begins, an ABRA license has been applied for by Busboys of Anacostia, LLC for an American Bistro planned to service “290 patrons and total occupancy load of 325.”

The initial hearing was last week with a protest hearing date set for May 27, 2015. Full info below …

In related news, the plywood covering the first floor facade adorned with banners announcing Busboys & Poets’ imminent landing has been gone for a number of weeks now. The wind gusts that crumbled 1909 – 1913 MLK Jr. Avenue are the reported culprit.
