Coming Soon: Napoleon

The soon-to-open restaurant and lounge from the owners of Café Bonaparte has an official name: Napoleon. The basement lounge, in a nod to the Paris Metro, will be called Metropolitain.

Back in August, Metrocurean reported on the owners' plans to acquire the space occupied by Mantis at 1847 Columbia Rd. NW. Napoleon will offer a menu similar to Café Bonaparte, with crepes and other French-inspired dishes. Co-owner Omar Popal says he's hoping to have the restaurant open in about a month.
