New Restaurant Coming to Former Galileo III Spot

Panache owner Aziz Safi is opening a Latin restaurant at 600 14th St. NW in the space formerly occupied by Roberto Donna's ill-fated Galileo III.

Safi was not immediately available for comment, and a manager at Panache downtown declined to give specifics. She described the spot as a "tequila bar." A liquor license notice says the restaurant will serve Mexican and Latin foods. It's listed as Riscatto Restaurant, although the name is not finalized.

Stay tuned for more details.
