Okay, I walked out of the BZA hearing after all testimony was over because I had to get back to work, but it looked like Beau Thai is gonna get some seating. Since Martin Moulton and Mr. Shaw Rez was there too and actually stayed, maybe they can say what the final outcome was.
But from what I can tell there was overwhelming community support for Beau Thai getting seating. There was some concern from a neighbor on NJ Ave about parking, but that was addressed. Since Beau Thai has been advertizing by word of mouth and most of the current patrons come on foot, and its close proximity to Metro, parking should not be a problem.
So unless some horror of horrors happened after I left, or some other administrative hoop needs jumping through, it looks like chairs and tables for 25 will come.
