Two More Weeks Until Banana Leaves Re-Opens in Dupont

March 2012

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since a devastating fire closed Banana Leaves restaurant at 2020 Florida Ave, NW (just east of Connecticut Ave.) in north Dupont. I stopped in yesterday and spoke with the owners who said they are getting very close to reopening. It’s taken a bit longer than originally anticipated but remember how severely the property was damaged. I’m happy to report that they’ll be open “by the end of the month”.
