Fuddrucker's, You're on Notice

By Julia Beizer

Nando's opens its second location in Washington today, bringing fiery hot chicken to Dupont workers and marking the company's next step in the U.S. market. The new outpost -- located on 18th Street, just across Connecticut from Lucky Bar and Midtown -- is bound to draw the bar-hopping crowd and will stay open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

The new location is reminiscent of the Seventh Street space -- exposed brick, lots of wood, lovely artwork by African artists -- and can seat about 140. The best tables in the house can be found upstairs, on a balcony that sits above the open kitchen.

What's up next for the South Africa-based chain? During a tour of the space on Tuesday, Director of Operations Alan Wollenschlaeger said the company hopes to open 30 to 40 locations in the greater Baltimore-Washington area in the next few years.
