Some well-known D.C. eateries have recently exited the local dining scene, and other neighborhood standbys appear to be on their way out.

Here’s a roundup of the latest closures around the area.


CLARENDONArlnow reports that British chain La Tasca has closed its tapas restaurant in Arlington, Virginia. D.C. restaurateur Ivan Iricanin has previously expressed interest in turning that three-story location (2900 Wilson Boulevard) into a modified version of Tacos, Tortas, and Tequila — the debut Mexican eatery he’s currently working on opening in Silver Spring, Maryland.

DUPONT CIRCLE—A tipster alerts Popville that fledgling Third Eye Tavern has closed after just a few months. The neighborhood bar debuted in April 2017.

PENN QUARTER—Restaurateur Victor Albisu has closed Latin American grill Del Campo. He is splitting the restaurant into the first D.C. outpost of his popular street food chain Taco Bamba, and his first modern Mexican venture, Poca Madre. The permanent Taco Bamba counter is currently scheduled to debut in early April.

SHAWWashingtonian reports that Glen’s Garden Market, the budding grocery chain that built a loyal following in Dupont Circle by serving locally produced food and beer, is closing its Shaw outpost this April. According to a statement issued by founder Danielle Vogel, the two-year-old shop was a learning experience. “It’s time to admit that we expanded too quickly, and it distracted us,” she wrote.
