Inside La Fourchette

The Adams Morgan restaurant La Fourchette and the apartment upstairs just hit the market for $2.9 million. The building at 2429 18th Street NW (map) is currently home to the French restaurant, whose owners live in the three-bedroom, two-bathroom upstairs apartment.

Though the couple is open to continuing La Fourchette on a short-term lease, they’re ready to ease out of the restaurant business after living there for more than three decades, said their agent, Robert Tack.

“They’re looking, ultimately, to retire, though I’m sure they’ll stay in the area,” Tack said. “I think they just want to wind down being in the restaurant business.”

The downstairs space, which features 20+ foot high tin ceilings, could be the future home of a wine bar or another restaurant. Right now, Tack said, La Fourchette closes at around 10:30 p.m. — early for the nightlife-heavy neighborhood. Tack said the likely buyer will either be another owner-occupant or an investor. The restaurant also has room for 20 seats on the sidewalk patio out front.

The apartment is large at 1,700 square feet, but a little dated. Most of the changes would likely be cosmetic, with the exception of the kitchen, which looks like it needs new appliances. The apartment and restaurant have two separate entrances that are both at-grade, not accessed by a stairway, which is relatively rare for the neighborhood.
