El Paraiso Closes at 1916 14th St, NW – Still Open in Alexandria

Another one bites the dust on 14th St, NW between T and U. In the last few months we’ve lost Taco Bell, Foot Locker, Domino’s, (soon) Ruff n Ready and (soon) United Supreme Council National Headquarters and Archives.

Stay tuned for more info on the big development/project coming into this space (except the Ruff n Ready space which is becoming a Taylor’s).

We judged El Paraiso back in Nov. ’08. I’m going to miss the Christmas trees…

For big fans, you can still check them out at El Paraiso II at 516 South Van Dorn Street in Alexandria, VA.

And for the curious – Chidogo’s is still open.
