Creme Not the Only Recent U Street Closure, Al Crostino Also Closes Next Door

1324 U Street, NW

Back before the explosion of new restaurant around 14th and U – Al Crostino was one of the first new exciting spots and also one of my favorites. I hope they find a new space soon! Last week they wrote:

“This is Al Crostino’s last weekend. Our landlord, JBG, has definitely decided to not extend our lease due to the upcoming condo construction.

We are looking for another location but in the meantime, my mom, chef-owner, will cater parties, do cooking classes and will be your private chef. If you are interested please email or call her at [email protected]/202-797-0523

We, thank you for all your support and patronage throughout the years.”
