DC Restaurants That Have Closed

A running list of the restaurants in Washington DC that have closed since the pandemic began. While the list is long, and growing, it doesn't account for the retail and food industry establishments that have struggled but stayed open despite riots, plagues, protests, lock downs, and lack of tourists that has tested all of them, with some of the best restaurants struggling the most. The list of closing is, sadly, much longer than the one we published in July, and will get longer still.

And yet the news is not all negative; some have recalibrated, and many new restaurants have opened, or are about to, while many operators plan their next venue to open this summer in a (hopefully) post-pandemic world.
