CityPaper’s Jessica Sidman reports:

“Mr. Smith’s will close its location of nearly 50 years around the end of the month. General manager Juan Andino says the Boston-based landlord wants to raise the rent, and “we can’t afford that.”

More new restaurants for Wisconsin Ave in Georgetown. The liquor license placard at 1419 Wisconsin Ave in the photo above does not list a name but says:

“Restaurant specializing in brick oven pizza.”

And a few weeks ago we learned that Yummi Crawfish was coming up the block to the former Puro Cafe space. They’ve now posted a liquor license placard as well:

“New seafood restaurant. The primary menu is crawfish with enhancement of side orders as well as other seafood types of dishes. Summer Garden. Total Occupancy load is 79″

Hours are listed as Sunday through Saturday 12 pm – 10pm.

This turned out awesome (def. worth checking out in person.) From a press release:

“The Georgetown Gongoozlers mural project (a “gongoozler” is an idler who stares at length at activity on a canal) begins this Friday, August 1, when Nena Depaz, the first of four local artists commissioned to produce a mural, installs her mixed-media work on the construction barricades covering the main entrance of the shuttered Latham Hotel, located at 3000 M Street, NW. Depaz’s work includes found materials from the canal’s towpath.

“I have lived close to the C&O Canal my whole life. It holds some of my very best memories,” said Depaz. “When I was a child, my father would walk my sister and me along its paths, and tell us stories about its history. Many years later, the most romantic dates I ever went on with my husband ended with stroll along the canal. Today, I still find it to be a beautiful and magical place. I hope that I am successfully able to convey my love for the canal through this project.”

The Georgetown Gongoozlers mural project celebrates the history and natural beauty of the C&O Canal. The murals will be exhibited sequentially on the façade between August and January (Nena Depaz, August 1-September 4; Georgetown resident Sidney Lawrence, September 5-October 15; Kelly Towles, October 16-November 13; Ekaterina Krupko, November 14-January 5). Each installation will later be auctioned to support historical interpretation efforts on the C&O Canal, including the construction of a new canal boat.

The Latham Hotel building closed in 2012 in order to make capital improvements. The Georgetown BID commissioned the temporary, rotating artworks to improve the streetscape during construction, discourage illegal graffiti, and to help support community efforts to maintain and interpret the section of the C&O Canal that is adjacent to the Hotel.”

I was happy to see that the refreshed Georgetown Dinette had finally reopened.

One yelp reviewer writes in late June:

“Georgetown Dinette has reopened under new management but Harry still owns the building and pops in and out on a regular basis. I live in the neighborhood and walked by and decided to try the gyro special tonight and it was the absolute best gyro I have ever eaten. The owners, Nasser and Josh, were giving away free sliders tonight (first come first serve, they won’t last long) and they were equally amazing. They mentioned they may be open late a few nights a week, which is a plus. This place is worth a visit, definitely a new gem in Georgetown.”

New trend in reasonably priced little spots opening in Georgetown?

“Dear PoPville,

I have a mystery for the residents of D.C.

Currently, The now closed Latham Hotel and its adjoining restaurant, Michel Richard’s Citronelle, are liquidating all of their assets (they will be doing so for the next 3 weeks).
The location is in Georgetown and I think people will find the sale interesting. As they unload a hotel’s worth of items, some curious things are going up for sale. Amongst the silverware, artwork, furniture, and statuary there was this:

A 300 pound bronze-cast plaque.

It is being sold-off…One of the ladies suggested purchasing it for its scrap value…Still no one knows who the image depicts.
Aside from what is seen here, there are no maker’s marks at all on the front or the back. Can anyone identify this person?”

Ed. Note: Obviously, free PoPville t-shirt for the first one to get the identity right.
