A reader reports:

Raku in Dupont [1900 Q St, NW] by Kramerbooks will be closing in roughly a month and moving over to Cathedral commons.

One of the servers told me yesterday.

Continuing the decline of eating and drinking establishments in Dupont.”

Ed. Note: An email to Raku for confirmation was not returned.

According to a liquor license placard the Raku opening in Cathedral Commons will be:

“full-service casual restaurant serving Pan-Asian cuisine and sushi. Total occupancy load of 114 inside premises. Sidewalk Café with seating for 36.”

This is right next door to the second Barcelona restaurant whose liquor license placard says:

“Full-service restaurant featuring Spanish and Mediterranean food, tapas, and wines by the glass. Total Occupancy Load of 225, inside seating to be determined. Summer Garden with seating for 36.”

Stay tuned for opening dates.
