Big news from the Tony Kornheiser radio show this morning. They say The Third Edition is closing after tonight in Georgetown at 1218 Wisconsin Ave, NW. Third Edition’s website says:

Since opening its doors in 1969, The Third Edition has been serving Washington, DC locals, tourists and students in the heart of Georgetown for over 34 years. It has become a staple for this historic neighborhood by providing the perfect stop for a quick bite while shopping on weekends to a favorite visiting spot among visiting celebrities and Washington, DC VIPs.

To this day The Third Edition has maintained its original focus on serving seasonal, American comfort food in its signature casual setting. The classic atmosphere with its dark wood paneling, brass rails and green and gold facade is a comforting and familiar sight.

Not only was its main bar feature in the filming of St. Elmo’s Fire, The Third Edition is the perfect accent to Georgetown’s historic charm. You can expect consistent service and quality cuisine upon every visit.

They speculated that the space would become a Mexican restaurant. Guest of Guest reported earlier this month:

“The multi-level bar is currently in talks with Richard Sandoval Restaurants, the Mexican dining powerhouse behind dozens of restaurants across the country, including El Centro and Masa 14 in DC.”

Stay tuned.
