DUPONT CIRCLE— PoPville heared the rumor earlier today that Sophie's Cuban is closing. A former rep for the restaurant confirmed to Eater that it will close, but had no further information; Borderstan talked to the owner who confirmed the closure will happen by March 25. Eater hasn't heard back from the company's headquarters about the decision. [PoP, EaterWire, Borderstan]
