The opening has been delayed due to construction hold ups. New opening weekend TBD.
Nando's Peri-Peri (411 H Street) will begin serving up their Mozambican/Portuguese style flame-grilled peri peri chicken very soon. Nando's will launch the weekend of February 13th and 14th (11am to 10pm) with a show of goodwill and generosity. Not only will their first two days of service be "pay what you want" (RSVP for groups of up to four), but 100% of what you choose to pay will go to support community programs at the Atlas Performing Arts Center (1333 H Street). They've even come up with a special Twitter hashtag (@NandosUSA) for the occasion (#NandosforAtlas).
If you haven't been to the Atlas recently you might not know about all the cool stuff they have going on. They recently became home to the acclaimed Mosaic Theater Company of DC, and February 26th through March 6th the Atlas will host the annual Intersections Arts Festival. Intersections offers something for everybody, with performances including spoken word, dance, live music, and even aerial acrobatics (kid friendly performances too).
Nando's will also run a special Nando's trolley during its opening weekend that will ferry riders (free of charge) between Nando's and the Atlas, with an additional stop at 9th and H Street. Those who wish to do so can sign up for Nando's mailing list and receive "a treat" (I'm assuming this is a coupon or voucher) when they open.
