11th and Florida Ave, NW
It was very upsetting to see this sign last month. Even more upsetting is scammers trying to take advantage of our emotions.
On Saturday the Florida Avenue Grill warned:
“Beware there are multiple unauthorized people purportedly raising money to “save” @floridaavegrill here on IG and elsewhere. None of these solicitations are authorized. They are done without our knowledge or consent. Nor have any funds donated been given to the Grill… The Grill is not going out of business.
We are closed, like most other restaurants, due to the COVID pandemic… If there ever is a future legit crowdfunding effort on behalf of the Grill you will hear about it from us through our social media etc.”
