1011 19th Street, NW

Thanks to Caitlin for sending word about Protein Bar closing on 19th Street just north of K:


She notes this follows other recent 19th Street closures – Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine and Science Club:

1134-36 19th Street, NW

As well as Smith and Wollensky’s:

1112 19th Street, NW

Also Shoes By Lara is closing:

1030 19th Street, NW

But at least Bonfire’s opening soon:

1132 19th Street, NW

    But at least there’s another one at 17th & K which could be why this one closed….

      Plus, the good news is – there are so many good lunch places around 19th that competition is fierce.

    Protein Bar is just too inconsistent for my liking. You would think with the multiple locations that their recipes would be a little more formulaic

      Protein Bar’s performance really has been confusing. The concept seems like it would be a hit in this area (as it is in Denver and Chicago), and they are typically located in high-traffic areas that would garner the health-conscious lunch crowd. Yet numerous times I’ve seen locations pop up and fail, or locations open up in near proximity to one another.

    I feel like Shoes by Lara has had a “store closing” sign up for at least a year.

      I think they run “store closing” sales often…I remember buying some shoes there during a similar sale years ago.

        It’s like the suit shops on Wisconsin in GTown that are always “closing”

    curious as to what craziness will inhabit the old

  • Terps

    Sophie’s was open last Thursday.

    • Note their sign is now turned around backwards in the photo to the left of the awning.
