10 More Prime Restaurant Sites Available In The District

On Tuesday, we compiled 10 of the top available restaurant spaces in the District. But given how booming DC's restaurant scene is, with 250 available restaurant tenants on the market, we barely scratched the surface. Here are 10 more prime sites throughout the District that could be the next popular dining spot. 

Anthem Row

  • Neighborhood: East End
  • Size: 60k SF of total retail
  • Broker: Jared Meier, Andrew Poncher, Streetsense

The Meridian Group is giving 700 K St NW a $142M renovation and branding the ground-floor retail as Anthem Row. Last week it signed luxury fitness club Equinox to 34k SF, but it still has prime restaurant space available on the corner of 7th and K and in the pedestrian-only 8th Street plaza. Across the street, Apple has reached an agreement to open a flagship store at the Carnegie Library. 

Lydian at 400 K

Quadrangle Development and The Wilkes Co are building a 324-unit luxury apartment building at 400 K St NW. The ground floor will have 13k SF of restaurant space with 14-foot ceilings. The building is along a fledgling food hotspot on K Street—it's next door to A Baked Joint and on the same block as Busboys & Poets, L'Hommage Bistro and Mandu.

Terrell Place

  • Neighborhood: Penn Quarter
  • Size: Up to 30k SF
  • Broker: Kelly Silverman and Kelley Malloy, Streetsense

On one of the busiest retail corridors in DC, this site offers 100 feet of 7th Street frontage. It is the former Museum of Crime and Punishment, but foodies certainly won't punish a restaurateur for opening just steps from the Verizon Center and Gallery Place

Georgetown Park


With an entrance just off M Street in Georgetown, this site will not be light on foot traffic. Owned by Jamestown, the building offers just over 4k SF of restaurant space. Jamestown has two additional Georgetown sites available with patio space and views of the canal. 

1401 New York Ave NW

  • Neighborhood: Downtown DC
  • Size: 5,059 SF
  • Broker: Miller Walker Retail Real Estate

At the corner of 14th and New York, this site sits just two blocks from the White House. Owned by Minshall Stewart Properties, the building offers 18-foot ceilings in its ground-floor restaurant space. 

2601 Virginia Ave NW

  • Neighborhood: Foggy Bottom
  • Size: 4,250 SF
  • Broker: Miller Walker Retail Real Estate

Urban Investment Partners is redeveloping this property, a former Howard Johnson Hotel and George Washington University dorm, into 200 apartments over retail. When it was a Howard Johnson, the Watergate burglars held their stakeout here, but now it could be prime spot for a new steakhouse.

Station House

  • Neighborhood: H Street Corridor
  • Size: Up to 17,920 SF
  • Broker: Miller Walker Retail Real Estate

On the corner of H Street NE and 3rd Street NE, this site has the advantage of being on one of the city's hottest new dining and nightlife corridors and being a stone's throw from Union Station. NY-based Fisher Brothers recently delivered the 375-unit luxury apartment building with ground-floor retail. 

Dock 79

The Salt Line opened in MRP Realty's Dock 79 development in Capitol Riverfront

This summer, MRP Realty delivered the 305-unit Dock 79 in the booming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. MRP has already signed All Purpose Pizzeria and The Salt Line, and still has a 3,382 SF space with water views on the market. 

400 North Capitol St

  • Neighborhood: Capitol Hill
  • Size: 12,098 SF
  • Broker: Rappaport

Johnny's Half Shell, a popular spot for congressional fundraisers, closed in May to head to Adams Morgan, and its old site is now available. Just steps from Union Station and The Capitol, the spot is ideal for any chef hoping to cater to lawmakers and wealthy donors. Do we hear expense accounts?

1901 Pennsylvania Ave NW

  • Neighborhood: CBD
  • Size: 7,913 SF
  • Broker: Rappaport

On the corner of Pennslyvania Avenue and 19th Street NW, this site sits just off the George Washington University campus. Popular restaurant Founding Farmers is across the street and the World Bank and IMF offices will bring plenty of daytime foot traffic.
