Ground Breaks on Busboys and Poets in Anacostia
Four years ago at a panel of restaurateurs in Historic Anacostia, Andy Shallal was asked if he would open up an outpost of his Busboys and Poets restaurant in the neighborhood.
“I am going to open a Busboys and Poets east of the river,” said Shallal, to an eruption of cheers. “When is the question.”
It turns out that it was actually a very good question, as four years later a Busboys has yet to open in Anacostia. However, that could soon change.

On Wednesday, Shallal told a panel that ground will break on the new location at 2004-2010 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE (map) on Thursday morning.
A groundbreaking would certainly indicate that the new location is happening, but things were iffy regarding the new Busboys as recently as last month. Shallal told us that the worst-case scenario would push the restaurant’s opening back until November 2017 — and that if it doesn’t happen by then, it’s not happening.
With the news of the groundbreaking, it would appear that the location is indeed, finally moving forward.
