El Rinconcito Deportivo Closing in November

3226 11th St, NW

We’ve noted the tremendous changes on 11th St, NW in Columbia Heights. Nearly all the changes have been incredible improvements to the neighborhood. Throughout these changes there has always been one constant – El Rinconcito Deportivo. This is the first change that brings me no joy to share.

El Rinconcito Deportivo has been located at 3226 11th St, NW (between Wonderland, Bloombars and Room 11) for sixteen years. It is run by one of the nicest and most hardworking people you will ever meet – Maria Nunez. I spoke with Maria yesterday and learned that the building is selling and the restaurant will be closing one day in November. It is possible that the new owners will decide to rent her the space but that is not likely. So for fans of the Deportivo – make sure to show Maria some love over the next few weeks.
