Dear PoP – Has 24/Seven Closed?

“Dear PoP,

On Sunday night I noticed that the windows were covered up with brown paper. This morning the establishment appears to be closed for good.

It was a greasy spoon/falafel shop that was open late nights on weekends and mornings on weekdays. It had been around as long as I could remember. I’ve lived in the area for 23 years. The address is 1408 U Street, NW.

Their hours had been becoming erratic lately. On some mornings they were not open for breakfast. This was surprising, given that 24/7’s weekday customers were mostly Reeves Center employees. It never was open 24/7.”

Wow, this is pretty big news as I remember there were tons of fans of this place. When I walked by there wasn’t anyone I could ask to find out if they are closed for good or simply remodeling. Anyone here happen to know?

Folks were big fans of this place, weren’t they? I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available.
