The Capital City Diner Now Lives at the Union Market

So it's been plenty of fun speculating just what will become of the shuttered Capital City Diner. But what was actually the endpoint of the diner's overnight journey through the streets of Washington, DC? The Washington Post has the scoop: the Union Market development, also known as the Florida Avenue Market. The diner's new owner is a company named Edens, which is developing the market with the help of former Cafe Atlantico chef Richard Brandenburg. Yes, apparently they bought the diner via eBay for $40,000.

A spokesperson for the company tells the Post that they aren't sure yet what they'll do with the diner now, but that the intent is to "preserve it and incorporate it somehow into the Union Market redevelopment." So no clue when it will reopen or what exactly that would look like, but hey, it's still in DC, right? And pretty damn close to its old home.
