From an email:

“On Saturday evening, March 21, 2015 around 5pm, a section of brick fell off of the upper facing of the building that houses Cafe Saint-Ex on 14th St NW. The cause of the incident is unknown, and thankfully no one was injured.

Representatives from DCRA were on site shortly after the event to inspect the area and removed any remaining loose bricks. They determined that the building is secure and cordoned off the corner of 14th & T Streets as a safety precaution. The restaurant reopened at 10pm that same night, using a side door along T Street as its entrance.

The building’s owner, Ron Renchard, is working with officials to erect scaffolding in front of the building for a full inspection.

The owners & staff of Cafe Saint-Ex take the safety of our guests very seriously and will continue to work closely with our landlord to ensure the building remains secure.”
