Nando's Sprucing Up Its 18th Street Restaurant

About 10 years ago, we opened our second restaurant in the U.S., in a stately and historic building off Dupont Circle. Now the time has come for us to give it some love!

From September 3rd to September 12th, Nando’s Dupont location (1210 18th Street, NW) will be closed, so we can make some important repairs as part of a two-stage renovation.

The good news: When we re-open our Dupont restaurant, we will hold a Nando’s Dash and offer succulent PERi-PERi chicken and other entrees - for free - to our guests. Date and details to come!

(Our September renovation is Stage 1 of a larger redesign. In December, we will close the Dupont location again and completely re-imagine the space, with a new kitchen and renovated dining areas. Expect to see all the customary Nando’s touches - bespoke furniture, creative lighting and original art from contemporary South African artists and artisans. These changes will help us cater more imaginatively to our growing customer needs.)

We apologize for this temporary inconvenience, and hope you’ll get your PERi-PERi fix at one of the other Nando’s in DC: Chinatown, Woodley Park and Tenleytown, to name a few.

About Nando’s PERi-PERi:
The first Nando’s restaurant opened its doors in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the Nando’s flame has spread to 23 countries on five continents. Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. It’s equally renowned for its spicy PERi-PERi, the Bird’s Eye chili pepper that indigenous Africans introduced to the Portuguese centuries ago. Nando’s PERi-PERi made its U.S. debut in 2008 with the opening of its first location in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, DC. Nando’s PERi-PERi now operates 42 restaurants in and around Virginia, Maryland, Washington and Chicago.
