Reader photo of a sign advertising happy hour at Kyss Kyss
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."

Bring back the Red Palace!
I am wary of places that misspell words for the sake of being kool.
kyss, kyss, bayng, bayng! isn't that a movie? or is that just the general theme for h street after dark these days?
YES, bring back the Red Palace!!!
Hear hear to the resurrection of the Red Palace!!
I wonder if I can tolerate the decor for $5 Long Island iced teas and $3 beers at happy hour. ;)
I'm sad to have to give a black owned business such a negative review but this was my experience...
A friend of mine chose this place for her birthday brunch. She made reservations for 15 people, weeks prior to her event. When she stopped by the day before her event, they had no record of her reservation. She re reserved her event for 11 am the following morning. Her guests arrived at 11 am and the employees tell them to wait outside (it's DECEMBER) because they are not open for business, nor are they ready for our group.
They finally let them in, late and the table is clearly not set for 15 people, no silverware, napkins, glasses for water. The waitress "B" (that's what she said her name was) was extremely slow with taking our order, bringing us things we requested, her attitude was poor. We were literally the ONLY people in the establishment, it was a Sunday afternoon. I asked for a cup of coffee, it took over 30 minutes to get my coffee, another guest and I asked to SPLIT an order of hash browns (which B described as being stringy but they were actually big chunks of potatoes) she CHARGES US BOTH for 1 order of hash browns, she charged me for avocado that came with my breakfast sandwich to begin with. Our mimosas were watered down and they had to remake a batch. There were so many complaints around the whole table, EVERYONE was unhappy with the whole experience from start to finish.
She knew that because we were a large group, she would automatically get gratuity. I would NEVER visit this place again or recommend Kyss Kyss to ANYONE!
Overall, terrible service, mediocre food and questionable work "uniforms" for brunch.
