Marrakesh Restaurant Closes at 617 New York Ave NW, Inventory Being Auctioned Off in October

617 New York Avenue, NW

Marrakesh Restaurant has been located at 617 New York Avenue, NW since 1982. In late August we learned Marrakesh’s Dupont location had become La Kazbah at 2147 P Street, NW.

From Rasmus Auctioneers:

“The famous Marrakesh Morrocan restaurant has closed and will make a complete liquidation of all its 2 bars, substantial night club assets, kitchen and exotic decorative accents.”

We judged Marrakesh back in 2009.
