Y&H took this picture as soon as I noticed the sign gracing the facade of the old Kuma space. Forgive the pic quality. I shot it through the car window while waiting at the light on Wisconsin Avenue at Albemarle, hoping I could snap it before the signal turned green and before the vehicle next to me blocked the shot.

I don’t have many details on Masala Art. The owner has a public hearing at 10 a.m.  on Nov. 16 to determine the fate of his class C liquor license. The hearing notice indicates that Masala Art will be a “fine dining restaurant” with seating for 45 people.  It’ll be open seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

I called the lawyer listed on the hearing notice and learned that the owner’s name is Atul. Or something like that. That’s all they had. I called the number that the law office had for Atul, but haven’t heard back.

More details as a I know them.
