Fire Damages Original Mandu on 18th Street “Closed for the foreseeable future as we recover and rebuild.”

1805 18th Street, NW

Thanks to all who messaged us about the original Mandu.

Update from owner of Mandu:

“We closed early last night due to the holiday and the fire seemed to happen shortly after midnight or so. Still trying to figure out what happened but it was not kitchen/gas related, and it was contained to half of the first floor. The fire department out of precaution and protocol had to bust through the windows upstairs, which is why it seems like it was a two story fire but it was not.

Thankfully nobody was injured or hurt. The speed and execution of the DC Emergency Services (Fire, MPD, etc) was outstanding. Our focus now is to figure out a plan for our staff as we start to plan how to remodel and open as soon as possible.”

Patrick reports:

“Apparently they had a fire at 3am last night and the damage is pretty extensive.”

John reports:

“it looks like a total loss (fire on both floors, etc.)”
