O’No! The Greatest Restaurant Name of All Time, O’Tasty, Has Closed in Adams Morgan

1764 Columbia Rd, NW

“Dear PoPville,

O’Tasty has been closed for a few days and their phone is unanswered. This is one of my favorite spots for cheap and relatively good Chinese food! Would be super bummed to see it close. Any ideas? No signs up in the window…”

I stopped by yesterday and was told by a neighbor that they closed last week. It wasn’t exactly clear why it closed so abruptly but the neighbor thought there may have been a disagreement with the landlord. I will hold out some hope that perhaps the disagreement can be overcome and there will be a resurrection. Because, never mind the quality of the food, this was by far the greatest named Chinese restaurant, no scratch that, the greatest named restaurant period. And for that this is as deep a blow to Adams Morgan as the loss of Cashion’s, Millie & Al’s etc.
