Four-week-old Restaurant Needs Liquor License Renewal

A restaurant open less than four weeks needs a liquor license renewal. The September 11 meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2B/Dupont heard that Doi Moi (1800 14th Street NW) is applying for a renewal of the liquor license originally obtained in 2012, when the restaurant was in its planning stages.
Doi Moi is located at 14th and S Streets

Doi Moi serves Thai and Vietnamese street food and opened for business on August 27.

Doi Moi is ANC2B district 09. The ANC member for that district is Noah Smith. Smith could not be at the ANC meeting due to business obligations. ANC2B liquor licensing affairs committee chair Kevin O'Connor (district 02) said that Smith had recommended that no action be taken on the renewal request, meaning, that the ANC neither protest it or endorse it.

ANC2B took Smith's suggestion, and no action was taken on Doi Moi's request.

According to information posted at the restaurant site, DC's Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Board will hold a hearing on October 21 on Doi Moi's application. The deadline for comments, for or against, is October 7.

Attorney Michael Fonseca appeared before the ANC on behalf of Doi Moi's operators. Doi Moi's owner is Mark Kuller, who also owns Estadio (1520 14th Street) and Proof (775 G Street).
