This week for Georgetown Time Machine, I’m dipping back into the pile of 1993 photos I’ve got. Today I’m visiting the northwest corner of Potomac and M St.
This late 20th century building has an odd layout, which remains to this day. Every other door goes to the basement level. And at this corner, the two street-level doors enter into one large space. This has been through a bunch of different tenants recently, from Moreso to Cafe Prague to a mini-food court with Subway, District Pizza and an Acai place. But in 1993 it hosted Fettoosh, with a takeout version called Fettoosh Express to the left. Fettoosh, not surprisingly, sold Middle Easter food. It lasted quite a long time, only closing around 2008.
Next door to Fettoosh was the legendary record shop, Smash Records. It was opened in 1984 and only moved out of Georgetown in 2006. It’s been in Adams Morgan ever since.
