Restaurant Nora in Washington, D.C.

Restaurant Nora, the nearly 40-year-old temple to organic dining, is scheduled to serve its final meals on Friday, June 30. Per Washingtonian, pioneering chef Nora Pouillon — she’s scheduled to receive a lifetime achievement award from the James Beard Foundation on May 1 — has not yet found a buyer for the eponymous restaurant she brought to Dupont Circle in 1979, but she’s ready to give up the grueling schedule she’s maintained for decades.

Looking for a turn-key project? The current asking price for the historic property is $7 million. [Washingtonian]
