Economy gives local restaurants pink slips

June 21, 2012

Today is the last day to check out Current as they are shutting their doors permanently! Times are tough as reflected by the number of restaurant closings in the last month – Casa Nonna, Heritage India, and Fruit Bat, to name a few. Eater DC has been compiling a list of closings taking place since late May including the surreptitious closing of Buddha Bar this past weekend. Apparently, DC peeps just don’t get the concept and the restaurant’s Paris base won’t let the DC location adapt the concept. Eater also reported the following upcoming closings:

Capital BBQ (July 14)
Potenza (July 30)
Zola (August 18)

It’s getting ugly out there. I need some wine.
