A second Pizza Autentica will be making its way to The Little Quadrant That Could according to the Washington Business Journal (subscribers only). One of the newest additions to the growing Pizza Autentica empire will open at the Capitol View office building on 425 3rd Street. At the L'Enfant Plaza Pizza Autentica location, lines are usually out the door during lunch hour, which demonstrates the dearth of restaurants in the area for workers (and residents), especially since the renovation of the Promenade at L'Enfant Plaza began late last year. It would have been nice if restaurateur Hakan Ilhan opened one of his other concepts instead of another Pizza Autentica (like Einstein Brothers Bagels, Gelatoria Dolce Vita, or Cafe Cantina), but beggars can't be choosers, I guess. There's no word yet whether the new Pizza Autentica will serve beer (like the Ballston location), whether it will stay open late, have indoor/outdoor seating, or when it will open. I'll let you know once I find out these details. There's still retail space available at Capitol View, which opened in 2008 and has slowly, but surely signed leases with office tenants. On the project website of The Rappaport Companies, it states that the retail spots at Capitol View are ideal for food or financial services. In addition to office lease signings at Capitol View, Patriots Plaza has been attracting tenants as well, so it was inevitable that a restaurant would open at 425 3rd Street. Hopefully a second restaurant will make an announcement soon.
