Commonwealth Gastro Pub Closing in Columbia Heights at end of the Month!!!

More insane huge crazy news. And this is most def. not scuttlebutt – this is happening. Commonwealth located at 1400 Irving St NW was the space owned by Jamie Leeds from Hank’s Oyster Bar fame. Thanks to all who sent emails about this.

I’m told they will close at the end of the month. The space will be closed for 60 days before a new ownership takes over. There will be a new name though it will remain pub food. I’ll be sharing lots more details in the near future.

To take a look back in time, we first checked out CommonWealth back in Aug. ’08. Will you miss them?
