End of Era Vol. 9 – Mixtec Closes in Adams Morgan

1792 Columbia Road, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Over the last several days I’ve noticed Mixtec restaurant being closed. Do you know what’s going on with it?”

Earlier this month Washingtonian reported:

“One of Adams Morgan’s oldest restaurants may close after 40 years. Mixtec owner Pepe Montesinos tells us he’s unsure of the restaurant’s future.”

I took a peek in the window on Sunday and plates and dishes were piled up:


Sadly it seems they decided not to take an extension like next door neighbor Pasta Mia. We judged Mixtec back in 2009. Will update when we learn who will take over the space.
