From La Tasca yesterday:
“The time has come to close La Tasca’s Penn Quarter location. We’re sad to see our DC location go but our Rockville and Alexandria La Tasca locations remain open and vibrant as ever, both with fresh new looks. We hope you’ll visit us there for our signature Spanish tapas and bustling nightlife.
We’ve enjoyed serving the Penn Quarter and Chinatown neighborhoods for over fifteen years. We’re grateful for all the customers and neighbors we’ve had the opportunity to serve at our DC location, and we look forward to seeing you in Rockville or Alexandria.
Note: La Tasca DC is closed as of today, Monday 11/25.”
City Paper reported:
“The problem is that staff members, including several that are long-tenured, found out about the closure the same day the restaurant shut its doors.”
