Flip Burger tried to sublet Wagamama space

We posted recently that Richard Blais is looking for space to put a Flip Burger restaurant in Washington.  We had learned that he previously tried to get space in Penn Quarter, but that negotiations fell through.

We have now learned from a reliable source that the space that fell through was the Wagamama space on 7th Street.   Blais tried to sublet the vacant space from Wagamama.  Obviously, that didn't work out in the end, and Wagamama is allegedly still coming.

Nonetheless, Blais is looking for new space, and it is likely to be in Penn Quarter since he previously wanted space there.  However, the Wagamama space is large. 

We have noticed the lights on in the very large space that used to be SoHo at 9th and E - could that be a Flip Burger?
