Rita's Water Ice (1014 H St) is getting close to opening

Rita Water Ice (1014 H St) has their sign up and has completed most of their internal build out with their counters and cash registers already installed. Their opening date remains unclear, but it seems like their goal of opening this summer may well be realized if permitting can keep up with construction.

This is another favorable development on the 1000 block, which should also have another nice dining option in the Atlas Room at 1015 H Street by later this summer. More details on that exciting new restaurant coming soon.


  1. They clearly didn't adhere to the 14 foot ground floor ceiling height requirement of the H Street overlay during the buildout. As a result, the space will feel cramped.

  2. I think people should ask exactly who did the H Street overlay. I think that they may be shocked at the lack of qualifications, except to be a member of CHRS.
