ANC2F Blocks Public Space Permit of "The Pig"

At its regular monthly meeting last night (November 5), Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2F/Logan Circle voted to protest the public space permit of The Pig restaurant (1320 14th Street NW).

Matt Raymond, ANC2F Chair, said there was no specific objection to the public space permit -- the objection was strictly procedural. Specifically, a representative of The Pig was supposed to appear at the last meeting of ANC2F's Community Development Committee (CDC) on October 29, but no one did. Since all public space applications are supposed to be considered by the committee first, the full ANC moved to oppose the application until the CDC could hear the details of the application.

DC restauranteur David Winer, partner in the EatWellDC restaurant group (which includes The Pig), appeared at the ANC meeting in support of the application. He asked the full ANC to hear the application, but found the ANC unwilling to hear it.

If all the parties involved show up, the public space application of The Pig will probably be considered at the next scheduled meeting of the Community Development Committee, scheduled for Wednesday, November 19, at 7pm, at the Washington Plaza Hotel (10 Thomas Circle). If the case turns out to be routine, it will most likely be on the agenda of ANC2F's next regular monthly meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, December 3, at 7pm, also at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

  1. I am not sure if anybody would want to dine outside here or at BToo once Popeye's opens. The strong smell of fried chicken and the loiterers will not be appealing.
