Washington Post shared the news yesterday:

“Ba Bay, the contemporary Vietnamese restaurant on Capitol Hill, quietly closed its doors last Friday because of “circumstances beyond our control,” e-mails co-owner Denise Nguyen. The closing brings a mysterious end to a restaurant that originally promised to put a modern American spin on Vietnamese cooking for D.C. diners.”

A reader writes:

“Really sad. I work in Barracks Row and ate there all the time, their banh mis were fantastic, as well as their sriracha wings! Never saw too many other people in there though, guess it just didn’t catch on. A shame to lose one of the more inventive restaurants in the neighborhood.”

Ba Bay was located at 633 Pennsylvania Ave, SE. Prior to opening the space was the long abandoned, though the tables were always set for serving, Locanda Italian restaurant.
