“Dear PoP,

I noticed on my way home from work last night that Mar De Plata on 14th street (a restaurant you recently featured on your site.) appears to be gone. Any idea if it’s permanently closed, under renovation, moved to a new location?”

Yes, the location at 1410 14th Street, NW has closed but they are now open at 1827 Jefferson Place, NW. (Very close to Trattu)  The new spot looks pretty good – see photo below.

    Actually, the Jefferson Pl. location has been open for some time now, so I wouldn’t say the 14th St. location moved there, as they were operating concurrently for at least a few years.

    Were they both even related? Owned by same people? Unfortunately, I never made it to the 14th location. Never heard enough reason to go….nor was it ever crowded when I would walk by. My question is what’s next to take this coveted spot on 14th Street?! I did walk by recently (last month of so) and saw Carla from Top Chef speaking to someone who looked like they worked there……hmmm….interesting!
