Addis Ethiopian Restaurant Now Open at 707 H Street
District Cuisine posted something January 19th announcing that Addis would open within a week or so and it happened last night. Late last week I was able to briefly chat with the owner who told me that they will immediately (soft) open with lunch and dinner service seven days a week. Addis does not currently have a liquor license, but the owner told me he intended obtain some sort of license that would allow Addis to serve beer and wine in the near future. Addis will have 59 seats with a total occupancy of 65. They will be child friendly, with highchairs available. They do plan to offer some sort of children's menu during certain times/days, but it seems like they are still trying to work that out. They do not anticipate offering any sort of entertainment in the near future. 707 H Street has been many things in recent years including J & V Pawn, and more recently the clothing stores Unik Style and Casual Corner. Back in 2011 someone also tried to open a place called Xclusive at 707 H.
