Le Diplomate Requests Temporary Seasonal Enclosure

Popular French Bistro Le Diplomate (1601 14th Street NW) has a request in the works for a temporary seasonal enclosure.

Le Diplomate's outdoor seating on Q Street
The Community Development Committee of Advisory Neighborhood Committee (ANC) 2F/Logan Circle heard the request last night at its regular monthly meeting. Le Diplomate currently has outdoor seating on two sides of its restaurant -- the 14th Street side and the Q Street side.

The Committee voted unanimously after a short discussion to recommend that the full ANC approve the request. ANC2F may consider this issue at its next meeting. The meeting is scheduled next Wednesday, October 2, at the Washington Plaza Hotel (10 Thomas Circle). Please note the meeting will start half an hour earlier than usual, at 6:30pm. Ward Two DC Councilmember Jack Evans is scheduled to appear at the meeting to discuss the recent incidents of gun violence in the Logan Circle neighborhood.

Le Diplomate's request must then be considered and approved by two agencies of the DC government -- the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), which handles public space issues, and the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB), because Le Diplomate is located in the Fourteenth Street Historic District.
