Kyss Kyss Opens in Former Vendetta Space

A reader sent in these photos of a sign in front of 1212 H Street NE announcing the grand opening of Kyss Kyss. The space was formerly home to Vendetta, which started off as an Italian restaurant with bocce courts. The bocce stuck around, but the menu and focus changed over time. Plans were announced to turn Vendettta into a brew-pub, but this never quite happened. The most recent menu posted to the now defunct restaurant's website includes items such as a steak and cheese, a burger, a grilled cheese sandwich, and wings. According to sources I would deem credible Vendetta sold recently to small group of investors, and closed its doors very soon after. On July 12th, the PoPville blog posted photos of a DCRA notice indicating the restaurant was operating without a basic business license.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find much information about Kyss Kyss, but one reader who passed it last night tweeted that "[i]t looked very, very bright and there was candy displayed in jars."
