    Wonder what “wraps in the area” are.

    • RK

      $1MM for wraps in the area!

    A million for the name..that’s some chutzpah. They changed the name from Chadwick’s just a few years ago.

    • Truxton Thomas

      Yeah, I thought they were a Chadwick’s spinoff.

        The one in Georgetown (now closed) and the one in Old Town were never affiliated with the one in Friendship Heights. They tried to be another Clyde’s but it kind of failed.

  • Jerry Grundle

    It’s hard to believe the name is worth $1 Million, when it seems like they’ve been in decline for the past 20 years.

  • L.Simpson

    They were all owned and operated by the same people for a number of years

  • Bonnie

    Chadwicks preceded Clydes in Georgetown & was a college semidive bar while Clydes was more upscale. The 3 restaurants were affiliated and then not. The interesting question is the lease/ownership of the space.
