“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know when or if Hunan Dynasty is reopening? Odd that there has been zero reports on such a popular place.”

While their website is still live, phone calls go unanswered.

On November 17th DC Fire & EMS reported:

“Fire at 200blk of Pennsylvania Ave SE extinguished. Units on scene, checking for extension. No injuries reported at this time.”

Ed. Note: I had to scroll from today to November to look up this old tweet (twitter really needs a better search function) and it really is extraordinary seeing all the rescue/responses they’ve made. Serious, serious props to DCFD. Don’t ever want to take these folks for granted.

    Try using Twitter’s Advanced Search if you aren’t familiar with it. Agreed they need to do a better job making this easily accessible.

    Not a clue as to when or if they’re reopening. I had takeout there a few months prior to the fire and discovered, much to my disappointment, that the food was burned. I vowed to never go again. It’s always been pretty mediocre to begin with, so maybe it’s time for a change? The annoying thing about this location (and the locations for Chef Spike’s places just one block away) is that mediocre food can stick around for a very long time, since there is a never-ending stream of tourists and visitors keeping them going. In other locations, they would be punished and have to improve or go away.

    No info on Hunan but I’m glad Firehook reopened (and with a great redesign!). They were also out of commission from this fire.

    I can think of a few other tags.

    It is not the very best Chinese food in America, but it is not as bad as many others. I miss it. It was my go to Chinese. Me and Chuck Schumer.
