The Popal Group


La Pop is owned and operated by the Popal family, immigrants who embarked on the American Dream because they, like Mr. Bonasera (from The Godfather) and generations before them, believe in America.   


We immigrated to America 30 years ago fleeing war in our homeland. The American Dream continues to pay dividend for us as we embark on new and exciting entrepreneurial adventures. Our adventure in this exciting business began 12 years ago when we decided Washington needed a little European flair by opening a Parisian-inspired crêperie. 

Over the years, we opened a sister French bistro, a private event space in a historic 20th century ice warehouse, and a modern Afghan bistro (homage to our heritage) in the city we’ve called home for almost thirty years. We are proud to bring new and exciting concepts to our city and invite you to be a part of our adventure. Come experience what we have to offer and maybe you too will leave inspired for the simple pleasures that life has to offer.
