Plans for a New York-based fast casual eatery in Georgetown appear to be moving forward.
New designs for DIG, a farm-to-table eatery with backing from restaurateur Danny Meyer, were recently filed with DC's Historic Preservation Office. The restaurant will be located at Wisconsin Avenue and N Street NW (map) and will occupy a portion of the former Paolo's restaurant space, which closed in 2018. Initial plans for the DIG location were filed in late 2020, but things have been quiet since then.
DIG has about 30 locations primarily in New York, and the menu focus is on seasonal bowls with locally-sourced ingredients. The DC location is designed by Garrett Singer Architecture + Design.
The northeast corner of Wisconsin Avenue and N Street has been home to a series of notable restaurants over the years. In the 1970s and 1980s, Little Tavern hamburgers sat on a portion of the site before Stoupsey's Cafe took the space in the 1990s. Paolo's opened on another portion of the site in the 1980s where it began almost a 40-year run.
