In November we learned Dino would be closing in Cleveland Park and opening a new spot in Shaw. [Dino’s last day in Cleveland Park is January 12th.] Thanks to a reader for sending a heads up about their new Indiegogo fundraising campaign:

“We would LOVE it if we could entirely finance the restaurant thru this campaign so we can birth our new baby with just our own resources and fan support. This is the only way we can have the freedom to do what we do best: support our sustainable network of small family farms & wineries, and artisan producers deliciously!

It will take over $200,000 in total to bring the new Dino’s Grotto to fruition. So even when we hit our target, please keep on donating! Then we can give our regulars and our new customers what they want.

The Shaw neighborhood is undergoing a rebirth of vibrancy and excitement after many a hard year. Dino is closing in Cleveland Park and now comes to Shaw to experience its own rebirth into a new form and a new future. We are excited to join such a dynamic and exciting neighborhood.”

Yesterday Dino’s tweeted:

“What a 1st day! 7% to our goal & our Indiegogo not even 24 hours old! $25 gets you 2 10% off visits #DinoComesToShaw”
