Washington, DC

“Dear PoP,

Walked by Uptowner on 18th today and noticed that it’s already closed!! I didn’t think the place would last long from the few times I had been in there and am not at all surprised that it’s already closed. Know what’s going in there in the future? Oh man I hope it’s a good Vietnamese or Korean restaurant!”

Wow, Uptowner Cafe had opened up in May ’10 in the long vacant Carribou Coffee space at 2421 18th St NW. Their other locations including the one in Columbia Heights remain open.

I tried to confirm by phone but the call went straight to voicemail. Anyone know when/if the Adams Morgan location closed? Is it possible it’s just a temporary/holiday closing? If the closing is permanent I fear the space may remain vacant for a number of years again…
