Washington, DC

1515 14th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Do you know if Posto has shut its doors? It was closed tonight [Sunday] and there was what seemed to be a small makeshift memorial (votive candles, etc.) in front of it. There’s no info on any closing on the website or their voice mail, but according to Open Table, there are no reservations available through March. Any info?”

On Saturday a tipster also emailed:

“Apparently Posto on 14th is closing for good this weekend. Any news?!”


“the building had been sold and the restaurant was closing”

Sadly the owner confirmed in an email to me on Saturday:

“Yes today it’s our last shift.”

A bit overshadowed by the new guys – Posto opened in the former Viridian space (which was also an awesome spot) back in January 2009. Posto survived the months (years?) long construction where the sidewalk in front of their restaurant was covered by plywood. The food was great too. RIP. Hope someone keeps the tradition of great restaurants in this spot alive.
