Ken’s Carryout No More?

“Dear PoP,

Not too long ago you wrote a post judging Ken’s Carryout. I don’t live too far from it, and happened to walk by while a sign for something called Wincrest Commercial was being put up with zip ties, covering the Ken’s Carryout sign. You can’t see it in my blurry picture, but the sign has two 703 area code phone numbers listed on it. I haven’t seen Ken’s open since early December at the latest, so I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Ken’s is no more, as this sign hanging would seem to indicate.”

Ken’s is located at 400 Florida Ave NW and when we judged them in Oct. ’10 we learned that it was already on the market for $249k. It looks like Wincrest could be a commercial real estate company. Whoever they are, I hope they keep this sweet mural.
