Banana Leaves Asian Restaurant Closes in North Dupont Due to Fire Late Sat. Night

“Dear PoP,

Heartbreaking for those of us in north Dupont. All the windows were broken out.”

Thanks to all who sent in emails about the very sad news.

Banana Leaves is located at 2020 Florida Ave, NW. On Sat. night/Sun. morning (12:30am) @dcfireems wrote:

Bananna Leaves (Asian) Retaurant, 2020 Florida Av NW ; business closed at time of fire; no inj; health dept notified.”

Thankfully nobody was injured but based all the emails I’ve received people are very saddened by this news. We judged Banana Leaves back in Dec. ’08 to very positive reviews.

I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available in general and on a possibly renovation in particular.

In addition to Banana Leaves, its next door neighbor Universal Liquor remains closed as well.

More photos after the jump.
