The Royal is ready to start caffeinating LeDroit Park again following a week of construction work.

The all-day cafe and bar (501 Florida Avenue NW) is projected to reopen at noon for lunch on Wednesday, August 15 with brand new flooring, artwork, and an extended tiled kitchen island. The temporary closure stemmed from an issue this winter, when a pipe burst in an apartment above and flooded and damaged Royal’s loft floors and ceiling. The landlord was finally able to repair everything this week, according to The Royal’s team.

Here’s a rundown of spots that have recently reopened or remain closed, either due to unexpected disasters or pre-planned construction work, menu overhauls, or retreats:
