Our favorite restaurants in the neighborhood...Utopia, Coppi's, and DC Noodles...have closed for the construction of the Louis apartments. They will all reopen in a year. For those who have lived here for a long time, Utopia was our first restaurant when all the buildings were boarded up at the corner of 14th and U. Then came Coppi's and now we have DC Noodles. We look forward to the renovation of the buildings that house them. The required 55 foot setback from the U Street facades for the Louis apartments building will preserve the historic townhouses. We look forward to a refurbished Utopia, Coppi's and DC Noodles!
