End of an Era, American City Diner Closes after 30 Years

5532 Connecticut Ave, NW

From American City Diner:

“Thank you so much to all of our longtime customers and the amazing community of Chevy Chase, DC for your support over the past 30+ years. It’s been a privilege serving you but the time has come for the American City Diner to close its doors. We will forever be grateful to Jeffrey Gildenhorn for bringing this beloved institution to Connecticut Ave.”

In September 2017 a fundraiser was launched after the sudden passing of owner Jeffrey Gildenhorn in June 2017.

Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.
