A reader reports:
“The long time Woodley Park Italian restaurant was totally dark and had a closed sign on the door tonight. It appeared all fixtures and furniture were removed and the menu was removed from the display case.”
On August 7th Cafe Paradiso shared on their Facebook page:
“Today Sunday is the our last day at Cafe Paradiso after 27 and half years in business, we had wonderful time and met wonderful people, made lots of friends, got married and had kids, my brother Samer and I saw our business flourish, it is very hard to walk away and say good bye to our wonderful staff- family some been with us for over 20 years, I thank them all, also our customers and neighbors many thanks.
Cafe Paradiso was a great place to come to work every day for 27.5 years and it will be missed by Samer and I we tried our best every day to make a great environment to work and for our customers to enjoy.
For all of this we are blessed and grateful.
Thank you Cafe Paradiso.
