Side by side on Griffin Market's front door are a work permit and a stop work order claiming there is no work permit. In other words, business as usual in DC. This morning I talked to Jamie Stachowski, the new tenant, and he said he's caught in some (hopefully) minor bureucratic red tape. Yes, he has a permit to do work on the building, but according to DC it doesn't cover the whole job and he needs to get another permit to cover the other part of the job. Thus the stop work order. Worst case scenario, he said, was his Stachowski Charcuterie would open after the first of the year.
