An agreement has been reached for Gypsy Soul to vacate the Mosaic District, but the restaurant remains open, according to a report in The Washington Post.

Court records show that chef R.J. Cooper has agreed to turn the space over to landlord Eskridge (owned largely by executives of the project's developer, Edens), according to the report. But the restaurant has been operating as usual.

News broke earlier in the week that the landlord claims the restaurant's owners owe $277,790. The legal agreement says the restaurant owners plan to pay that money back, too.

Eater has reached out to the restaurant and the developer for any additional details on Gypsy Soul's future.

UPDATE: Chef Cooper sent this statement to Eater: "We are currently and confidently working with the landlord to resolve this dispute. Gypsy Soul is looking forward to a busy and fun summer at Mosaic Center."
