H Street, NE Legend, Horace & Dickie’s, reportedly Closing on March 1st after 30 years.

809 12th Street, NE

Oof. Horace & Dickie’s is of course legendary.

“Horace & Dickie’s Seafood Carryout is home to the famous Jumbo Fish Sandwich. One bite and you’ll be hooked!”

Sadly, WJLA broke the news last night:

“The owner, 82-year-old Richard “Dickie” Shannon, says he’ll be playing more golf.

He blames gentrification, which he calls “cultural genocide,” for forcing him out.”

Another Horace & Dickie’s will remain open in Takoma (6912 4th Street, NW.) You can see their menu here.
