The Reserve, Garrett's Restaurant & Railroad Tavern Close

Welcome back to the Shutter. Know of any other restaurant that has met its demise? Let us know.

The Washington Post reports that the tapas restaurant was evicted from its building. Employees sat outside playing cards next to a pile of tables, chairs and other restaurant belongings. [WaPo]

2) Georgetown: Garrett's Restaurant and Railroad Tavern ended its 32-year run earlier this week, posting an RIP note on its website thanking long-time patrons. There's no reason given for the May 30th closure, but the Georgetowner talks to a former Garrett's employee who says he believes it "reflects an ongoing change in the Georgetown area and a shift in the social scene as rent increases and bigger businesses move in."
