Back in June, Young & Hungry colleague Lydia DePillis reported that big-time Philadelphia restaurateur Stephen Starr was close to signing a lease at the old Shirt Laundry space at 14th and Q streets NW for his très français concept Parc Brasserie.
Another food blog downplayed the report. But lookie here: Placards are now up on that corner, indicating that Parc Deux Restaurant Partners LLC will be moving in with a 246-seat "restaurant, bistro and cafe" serving "classic French cuisine" for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch.
A hearing on the application is slated for Jan. 3.
Starr is behind the popular Philadelphia resto Parc.
