After just 15 months of business, 10 Tavern has closed in the bustling Chinatown neighborhood. Baltimore-based ownership group Phillips Seafood took the opportunity to announce that the Asian-inspired Street Carts franchise it’s moving into the old Tortilla Coast spot in Logan Circle is now scheduled to open this fall.

The second-story destination (707 G Street NW) that banked on business fueled by next-door Capital One Arena games just posted a sign on its door announcing its demise, and its website also confirmed the shutter.

The signage also teased out Phillips’ upcoming restaurant that’s slated to take over the former Tortilla Coast space in Logan Circle at 1460 P Street NW: Street Carts. Details are limited for now, but the chain promises dine in or take-out food themed around Bangkok and Southeast Asian cuisine. (Tortilla Coast still serves up its Tex-Mex fare locally in Capitol Hill.)

The 130-seat 10 Tavern featured a sidewalk cafe with over two dozen high-definition televisions showcasing big sporting events of the day. It’s unclear what will replace the erratic location; 10 Tavern formerly housed another failed sports bar, Redline.

Meanwhile, another beer-friendly establishment joins the neighborhdood on Monday, April 9: Yard House (812 Seventh Street NW). One of the newer area entrants is Metropolitan Hospitality Group’s biggest Circa to date, which just opened up in the shuttered Zengo space in February.
