1) Columbia Heights: Mad Momos, which offered Nepalese dumplings among other dishes, has closed in Columbia Heights. A message from the restaurant indicates something different might be coming to the space: "Please stay tuned for something new and exciting coming soon."
2) Mt. Vernon Triangle: As expected, the last day of operation for The Passenger was New Year's Eve (as well as the destination bar inside, The Columbia Room). Derek and Tom Brown's dark cocktail bar is looking for a new location; The Columbia Room already has one lined up in Shaw.
