“Dear PoP,

Do you know about the Indian restaurant Nirvana? I’m sure you do, since you’ve been in D.C. for a while. Nonetheless, it suddenly closed in July. Initially I was told by one of the owners that they were closing due to renovations. But now, when walking by, it appears the closing is more permanent, as the metal sign is gone and the windows are “boarded up” with a white sticker (now commonly used by buildings that do now want to appear vacant). Do you know if there is any chance one of the best Indian restaurants in town is relocating? Or, do you know what happened, exactly? Did the restaurant’s lease expire?

The address of the restaurant that closed was 1810 K Street, NW. It had the best buffet, in that all of the food was extremely fresh. Also, Nirvana’s buffet featured a different region of India every weekday, something I enjoyed. It will be missed. I’m going to check out the 18th & I express location to see if the new restaurant has a buffet. If not, I guess I will have to find another lunch option. ”

Their Web site says:

“Nirvana will be closing for good as of June 25. We appreciate your business, and hope we see you in our other locations.

Nirvana Express
1825 Eye Street NW

Were there any other fans? We looked at some DC’s best Indian restaurants here and here when we judged Rasika.
