Pure Puro: A secret garden oasis
Breezes and a few sprinkles raised the suspense of a beautiful night as Puro Café opened its secret garden & patio to neighbors from the Georgetown BID, Georgetown Business Association and the Citizens Association of Georgetown. Owned by the charming Rashid Hassouni, this tranquil, exotic space has become a haven for neighbors enduring the repaving of O & P Streets. Serene and modern, the bright oasis is still an unusual find in Washington -- mixing European and Middle Eastern traditions of coffee, Mediterranean food and drink, spirits and sublime hors d’oeuvres. You could be in Paris or Instanbul, but this is Georgetown: pure Puro.
