Expansion-minded fusion sushi shop Buredo is dialing back its Northeast presence, opting to close its six-month-old Atlas District outlet to focus on its newer NoMa location.
The fast-casual burrito brand broke into the D.C. quadrant in February at 625 H Street NE, and in June, debuted another location a short walk away in NoMa (111 K Street NE).
A manager at its Dupont Circle sister location confirmed the H Street Buredo closed on Friday, August 17 as part of a plan to “consolidate” its Northeast operations, she told Eater. A Popville reader spotted signage about the shutter.
Buredo fan @curvygirlsarechic voiced her disappointment about the loss on Instagram, commenting: “Yall just closed H street on us with no warning [sad face].”
Buredo’s now left with five area locations with no new ones on the horizon, the manager adds. The three-year-old chain also slings burrito-sized sushi rolls, salads, and bowls in Bethesda, Tenleytown, Dupont, and Franklin Square. A best seller since day one has been the Beatrix (yellowfin tuna, salmon sashimi, cucumber, pickled cabbage, green onion, tempura crunch, and unagi sauce).
