Philly Cheesesteak & Gyro Closed in Adams Morgan – in September!

2421 18th Street, NW

Apparently they closed in September?!?! How come nobody told me? 🙂


This is the former Mediterranean Spot which opened in July 2013 and changed names to Philly Cheesesteak & Gyro in June 2014. The original Mediterranean Spot at 15th and U is still open and doing well.

    There seems to be a lot of turn over in that spot. Wasn’t it a coffee shop first, then it sat empty for years.

  • As a resident of Adams Morgan I hope this place opens with some sort of good take out that is not Ramen or falafel. Not that there is anything thing wrong with those foods but the market is saturated. The Med spot there was terrible. Next owner / operator should not just throw a mismatch of items all over the place and maybe staff it with more than 1 person.

    • Would kill for a cava grill

    • While I haven’t been to this location (apparently I’m not the only one), the Mediterranean Spot on 13th and U is absolutely great. The owner is a great guy – sorry to hear that his ventures didn’t work out on 18th street.

  • Yeah, this spot seems cursed. Used to be a Caribou Coffee many years ago (when they existed). This Philly place was totally generic, and I rarely saw anyone in there. I think I stopped in there once and was completely underwhelmed, but surprised it lasted as long as it did. It’s a decent sized space in a prime spot on 18th. Not sure why places don’t last there – wonder if the lease is too high?

    Someone needs to smudge that space

  • This place will house a successful business around the time that something finally opens in the DCCD space next door.
