Iconic Ruppert Real Estate – Real Restaurant Sign Coming to Petworth

1017 7th Street, NW

On Monday I mentioned how strange it was to see The Passenger closed. What’s even stranger is seeing the Ruppert Real Estate – Real Restaurant Sign removed (recently home to Hogo though others will recall the old warehouse.) Ruppert of course is Paul Ruppert (among many other legendary Rupperts) of Room 11, Petworth Citizen, Upshur Books, Crane & Turtle fame. The latter establishments are of course all located on Upshur Street in Petworth. So it is no surprise that come springtime that’s where you’ll find the legendary Ruppert Sign reinstalled. A serious sign of the times!
