On Wednesday we learned the sad news of Cashion’s closing (to be replaced by Johnny’s Half Shell). Here are Cashion’s departing words and official last night:

It’s with heavy hearts that we confirm that our official last night of service will be Thursday May 12th, 2016.

To our Friends, Neighbors, and Family:

As some of you have already heard, Cashion’s Eat Place will be closing our doors after nearly twenty-one years of service. For over two decades it has been our pleasure to be at the heart of the dining scene in Adams Morgan, and we have met and grown to know some truly wonderful people along the way. Unfortunately, we must admit, with heavy hearts, that all good things must eventually end.

We have relished cooking delicious food, pouring fine wine, and helping to raise the bar for hospitality, but even more so we will always cherish the relationships that we have established with our guests, our neighbors, and our vendors. Truly, the people are what make the experience worth living, and we have been fortunate enough to have some of the finest in the city coming through our doors.

We thank everyone who has supported us. We could not have done what we did without you, and we are all grateful for the opportunity to have been part of a truly wonderful restaurant experience. We hope that in the coming weeks, and months, that we can look forward to continue working with you on our new endeavors.

Please stay tuned for final details about our closing, so we can send Cashion’s out in style.

Thank you all again. Cheers, and we’ll see you tonight!

Cheers and see you all tonight!”

    I lived nearby and used to love their food, but after they changed the menu a while back, I never had a good meal there again – there was always one item, and often two, that was just so wrong in concept it was inedible. I wonder if others felt the same, and if this led to a loss of patrons.

      Agree totally. Ate there often because a friend insisted on it, but toward the end everything was sooo salty, I couldn’t bear the food.

    I always voiced what was wrong – but the items didn’t seem to change. Seems like many restaurants don’t listen to their frequent customers.

    Cashion’s was awesome. I used to live near it before moving to North Columbia Heights. I’d love to see Cashion’s move to upper 14th St, Geoegia Ave or Upshur St. Perfect neighborhood restaurant that people would love!

    Anyone else making the likely connection between John Oliver’s piece on the Half Shell; the Half Shell suddenly moving back to AdMo; and Cashion’s closing suddenly? I’m just saying…this may not be because of lack of business (though I don’t have any inside knowledge to back this up, it just seems strange to me).

    • I just assumed it was pure coincidence, since you wouldn’t make such a big move based on a 30 second mention in a 30 minute late night TV show that likely isn’t watched by the majority of your intended clientele.

      Johnny’s Half Shell is co-owned by Anne Cashion. There’s the extent of your connection.
