While the sign on the door says Galileo III has simply closed for renovations – the Washington Post reports:
“The restaurant that was supposed to resurrect Roberto Donna’s sagging fortunes has now contributed to his decline. The celebrity chef confirmed this afternoon that Galileo III at 600 14th St. NW has officially ceased operations.”
Galileo III was located in the old Butterfield 9 space. I’ll keep my eyes on the space to see who will/what will take over.
