It’s official. Georgetown clothing store Hu’s Wear will take over the space currently occupied by Bartleby’s Books, reports The Georgetown Dish. Owners Eric Eden and Marlene Hu Aldaba plan to turn the space on 1132 29th St. NW into a Mediterranean style restaurant. According to their liquor license application, the restaurant will serve “breakfast, lunch and dinner specialties to include homemade pastas, sauces, wood-grilled seafood and meats.” In a statement to GD last month, Eden says they’ve already lined up a chef. The restaurant will likely open next year.
