El Pollo Rico is open again
Not sure if it's open today or if the opening will happen in the next few days but here's the brief story from one of the news channels:
Here's the story from the washingtonpost.com
Hopefully they stay open for awhile. My boyfriend, despite living in DC for more then 7 years, has never tried the delicious "crack chicken." And when he comes to visit me again (he lives out of state) I promised him we would rent a Zipcar so he can get his fill before they (possibly) get shut down again.
Open today !!
Line out the door and cameramen out front.
Was told the delay in opening was to train new employees.
Personally, since they were closed up and things were crawling and 'brewing' in there for two weeks, I'm letting the ovens go for a day at full blast before I eat anything from there.
