H Street Great Street has the scoop on two new places opening on H Street. The first is Casbah, which will serve Pakastani/Indian food ("South Asian"). There had been rumor for quite a while of an Indian restaurant possibly taking over the old Naby's space (1128 H Street), but then everything went quiet, and it seemed like the deal had died. Recently, I had noticed construction of what looks like a bar inside the space. This report from H Street Great Street confirms the good news.
Just down the street at 1255 H Street a new restaurant called the Spot plans to set up shop. The Spot will serve Latin American food. This space previously was home to a store selling incense, scented oils, and clothing. That store has relocated to the 1400 block (it was previously down the street at 1309 H Street).
