Tacklebox cum Bandelero to become Pulpo

Prince of Petworth reports that the Tacklebox in Cleveland Park will become Pulpo, a tapas restaurant, once Bandelero is done with their pop-up thing.
Early last week I mentioned that Tackle Box would not likely reopen after the Bandolero run in Cleveland Park. Thanks to everyone who shared the Tom Sietsema tweet:
“Owner of @Florianadc tells me he’s taking over @tackleboxdc site in Cleveland Park May 7 & turning it into Pulpo, (Octopus) a tapas bar.”
This is a bit disappointing. Not that I don't love octopus, but I'm not sure DC needs another tapas place, and Tacklebox seemed like a great fit for Cleveland Park, right in a price and style niche that was otherwise unserved there.
