The building housing Meskerem, a popular Ethiopian restaurant that’s long been a part of the streetscape in Adams Morgan, has gone under contract.
2434 18th Street NW (map) went on sale Dec. 8 for $2.2 million. The listing agent, Robert Tack, said the building’s new owners would likely run a restaurant in the space as well.
“It is my understanding that the plans for the structure and existing use would be similar under the new buyer,” Tack told UrbanTurf. “They would do whatever applicable renovations necessary to attract another high-quality restaurant.”
Meskerem started offering Ethiopian food on 18th Street in 1986 and is one of the neighborhood’s longest-running restaurants. Tack told UrbanTurf in December that its owners had decided it was time to move on.
