I cannot tell you a thing other than what is contained within this tweet
from Barracks Row Main Street
, so I will just repeat it:
"Very happy that Las Placitas is staying on Barracks Row! They'll move this fall to the old Quiznos space at 8th and M on lower 8th Street."
Las Placitas with its Mexican fare is of course one of the mainstays of 8th Street, but it had been announced a few weeks back that its lease was not being renewed, and that next-door neighbor Matchbox would be expanding into the space.
As for the new location, there hasn't been much going on since Quizno's left a few years back, and other restaurants in the 1100 block of 8th--Chicken Tortilla and Levi's Port Café--have been closed for a while as well.
This space, on the northeast corner of 8th and M, is immediately to the north of the Navy Yard's Latrobe Gate, and is also across the street from the Blue Castle, which was bought late last year
by the National Community Church. Plus, one block to the north is where The Brig
will open, someday. And this may be especially good news for the eventual tenants of the Lofts at Capitol Quarter
, now under construction at 7th and L, who will have a sit-down restaurant a block away.
