Anyway, as was reported a couple months back in the SS Penguin, next up for 8113 Georgia Ave looks like Pacci's, Brick Oven Pizzeria. Penguin staff reported the owners of Mrs' K's are behind this move. While I did not speak to anyone at Mrs K's, the MD Dept of Assessments and Taxation does list the same address for the ownership group of Mrs K's (Quick Cuisine) and Pacci's (8113 LLC).
I'm not overly concerned about this as long as Pizza Hut or Papa John's is not trying to fool us like Coor's tries to do with the beer drinking masses with its Blue Moon, Belgian-style beer.
I've always believed that spot had potential and it's disappointing to see it there empty. And what's the deal with the awning on the north side of the building? It looks like at some point it could have been part of a pick up window. Could there actually have been a drive-through place for pierogies? Oh man, I'm dying.
Well, let's see about Pacci's. I've seen no workers outside the building and I cannot see anything that's been done to the building. It doesn't fill me with a lot of hope for something coming anytime this year or even next year. Moreover, the tight credit markets don't help. I guess if things do fall through I'll look into this spot for myself. As I've said, I like the spot and maybe my Italian deli/market/sandwich shop would do well there. Perhaps in a couple years I'll have the financing ready. Probably not, but it's still nice to think about. Any potential customers out there for a nice mortadella sandwich or maybe grilled eggplant with ricotta on some crusty Italian bread?
