Washington Business Journal has an Exclusive! that Mission Dos, a 10,000-square-foot, two-level, 400-seat restaurant from the owners of Hawthorne and Mission will be opening in 2018 at the corner of Van and N Streets, in the ground floor of the new apartment building 1221 Van.
(It's the space at the center of this photo, as seen from the Center Field Gate of Nats Park a short block away.)
The owners are planning to keep the 125-foot bar and the restaurant open late, and will "work to make Mission Dos a 365-day-a-year business," says WBJ. And there is a "stretch goal" to open in time for the All-Star Game, but We Shall See.
This is the first announced retail tenant for 1221 Van, which has 290ish apartments with leasing now underway. There is still an additional 17,000 square feet of retail space in the building to be spoken for.

This is excellent news. I hope Agua 301 can continue to compete, however.

Is this the space where Punchbowl Social was rumored to go? Or am I thinking of somewhere else.


JD says: (1/24/18 4:52 PM)
No, that will be at the Jair Lynch/Monument Valley building, 1250 Half.



JES says: (1/24/18 4:55 PM)
Isn't a 125 foot bar about as long as an 11-story building is tall? Is that building even that long?

Regardless, I am intrigued. We're going to need these giant spaces to accommodate crowds once the Fairgrounds eventually (finally) goes away.


JD says: (1/24/18 4:56 PM)
I'm guessing it snakes.

That is a gigantic restaurant, no? Personally, I don't necessarily need every restaurant to be 15 tables, but I don't want to feel like I'm eating in a campus cafeteria.

I'll stick with my neighborhood favorite, Las Placitas :)

I'm moving into this building soon-ish. There's also a rumored coffee shop opening. I can't remember if they said in 1221 Van or a different spot.

400 seats! I wish them all the luck, but it seems like something that could not work and then just sit empty.

Here's my best-case scenario: this, plus the other options coming online in the immediate ballpark vicinity (all-purpose, maybe dacha) soak up enough of the ballpark crowd that I can actually get a drink at Bluejacket on a gameday.

+1 on Las Placitas. Love it!


JES says: (1/26/18 3:06 PM)
@malatesta

We can dream, right? Alas, I think Bluejacket's good reputation alone will keep it crowded as all hell even after everything along Half Street opens. I shall keep enjoying it immensely during the colder months though.

Looks like Wiseguy’s is official! Spotted them putting up a sign on the old Il Parco/ Park Tavern this morning
