I’m not sure that you can call it a renaissance yet, but Georgia Avenue keeps showing signs of life — at least in terms of more eating options. I drive this strip regularly and have noticed a few new storefronts popping up, including Washington Deli Pizza, the latest property fromowners Jim and Debbie Doherty.

The operation draws its inspiration from New York in that it combines elements of a Jewish deli and an Italian by-the-slice joint. I’ll be interested to see how it plays in Brightwood.

The other joint, located next to Moroni & Brothers, looks like some sort of Ethiopian operation. Best I can tell, it’s called Ethio Jam, and it’s promising “fine dining.” Perhaps a lounge setting too?

Anymore know more about this place?
