The old Bubba Muscogees is getting a new tenant. Interior demolition and reconstruction has been ongoing for months at the former restaurant located on the corner of 16th St NE and RIA. With a planned finish and open date of early March 2011, the Flip-It! Bakery and Deli, will be the third of its kind in DC. The other two restaurants are located off of Georgia Avenue and the second is at Michigan Avenue.
The owner of the Flip-It! restaurants, Lester Foote, says that the location along Rhode Island Ave NE will be a “family-style restaurant” that will not serve alcohol. The restaurant will seat 87 patrons and have a banquet hall that people can rent out. The hours are going to be 7am to 9pm on a daily basis and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner (with breakfast served all day). Lester Foote says that he is a longtime DC resident, who grew up in the area of Ward 5, and that his mother still lives in the area of the Rhode Island Ave location.
