Update: End of an era. Thanks to a commenter for finding on their website:

“We are sorry but our CAPITOL HILL location is permanently closed. For great Armands Pizza please see our other locations.”

Only a matter of time? Thanks to Justin for sending: “Small sign says “for renovations”. This is Armand’s only remaining DC location after Tenleytown closed back in 2012. Capitol Hill is still listed on their website so we’ll see if the renovation is for real. Armand’s is located next door to Bagels & Baguettes which closed last February for a major building renovation. Still not clear if and where they will be returning.
