What's to Come in the Cafe Atlantico Space

Last month, we reported that Frederick de Pue had bought the old Cafe Atlantico/Minibar/America Eats space on 8th Street.  Today, Washington City Paper brought us some more information on the restaurant.

What it'll be called:  Azur

Focus: European classics with contemporary flavors (focusing on seafood)

What happened to the Minibar area? A raw bar

The look:  three stories of "hues of the ocean"

Partnerships:  Azur will serve tea from Teaism (conveniently across the street); Founding Farmers' mixologist Jon Arroyo will design seasonal cocktail menus

Opening date:  New Years Eve (dinner only); a Spring launch for lunch and brunch
