Le Grenier (502 H Street) applied for a liquor license back in March 2011 but has been largely silent since then. However, we noticed construction occurring inside recently, and Le Grenier’s parent restaurant confirms that they hope to open sometime in July. The construction seems to have a ways to go but hopefully they will be able to open this summer.
Le Grenier is a French style bistro from the owners of Le Chat Noir (located in Friendship Heights). Le Chat Noir has quite an extensive menu of French dishes for lunch, brunch, and dinner. The liquor license application for Le Grenier says that they will have indoor seating and a small sidewalk cafe to seat a few people and will be open late. Le Grenier will add to the newly revitalized west end of H Street which has recently seen the opening of Big Board and Boundary Road.
