Has Penang Closed in Dupont?

“Dear PoP,

Penang on 19th Street appears to be closed for good. I walked by it at lunchtime, and it was completely dark. There’s no sign on the door (I didn’t have my camera with me), and one of my coworkers said it was completely dark before the holidays as well. I wonder if they never fully recovered after being closed for so long after the fire.”

I thought I had heard that Penang located at 1837 M Street NW would be reopening in Feb. Anyone else hear that?

We Judged them back in Aug. ’10.
