Simply Home Conversion Complete

In an impressively quick makeover, the space once occupied by Julia's Empanadas on U Street has been transformed into the sleek restaurant extension of Simply Home.

The narrow Thai restaurant, which connects to the retail space next door, offers lounge seating in the front, a full service bar crowned by a giant plasma TV and a long row of tables against one wall. The original take-out operation is still available, but now there's a separate dining room menu.
