2100 P Street, NW

Thanks to a reader for passing on potential Scion restaurant news from a Greysteel advertising flyer:

“Fully renovated restaurant condo on a hard corner in DuPont Circle

Located on the Southwest corner of 21st and P Streets NW, just over a block west of DuPont Circle and Metro Station

Turnkey restaurant space delivered vacant; ideal for a new concept or leasing

Excellent street frontage with strong foot traffic, across the street from Starbucks

The zoning, size of the space, and location make this space suitable for a wide range of potential uses”

OP notes: “I haven’t been there in awhile, but spent many a drunken brunch there in my youth. Was surprised to see this land in my inbox – it appears to still be open from what I could find online.”

Scion opened up back in 2009. You can see their menus here. In January 2012 President Obama made a visit. Updates when more is known.

Update from Scion:

“To be clear there are no plans to close right now! However, It has been a wonderful ten years in Dupont but our lease is up next year and with the changing tides of the market we have not yet agreed upon a new rate with the landlord. Negotiations are ongoing and we have a longstanding positive working relationship so we are optimistic. In the meantime the landlord is testing the market on possibly selling the building as is his right and we could possibly vacate early at the end of this year if so negotiated. The winter season is so slow anyway and would be a good time for another tenant to renovate. Ultimately we love Dupont and we hope to stay in the neighborhood for another decade but only if it makes business sense! I’m sure everyone can understand how difficult the environment can be for a small family restaurant such as ours. In the meantime we are still here so come see us soon, we appreciate the neighborhood support!
