Richard Sandoval is opening a Mexican restaurant in Shaw — but it won't be an El Centro D.F..
Eater reached out to the restaurateur's spokeswoman, following a report on PoPville where an ANC Commissioner told the site that an El Centro was coming to the neighborhood. Ivan Iricanin, who runs Sandoval's D.C. operations, confirms the restaurant group has signed a lease for 1547 7th St. NW.
Details for the restaurant are still being finalized, but the plan is for the restaurant to be casual Mexican concept with carryout, and it will not operate under the El Centro moniker. More information will be revealed closer to the restaurant's opening.
