Thanks to all who sent links. Back in late March we learned that the group that owns Hawk ‘n Dove, Senart’s Oyster House and The Chesapeake Room had filed for bankruptcy. Now the Wall Street Journal has a wild update:

“Investors who bought several restaurants that fueled the dining boom in Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill neighborhood are accusing the D.C. restaurateur who sold the eateries of sabotaging the restaurants in a scheme to take them back. And they want their scooter back, too.”

Read the full story here.
