Woodley Cafe Has Been Closed, Hopefully Temporarily but unclear at the moment

2619 Connecticut Ave, NW

The last two weekends I’ve walked by there has been a closed sign on their door during times they’ve previously been open. A call to the restaurant does go to voicemail but the mailbox is full.

A young Dan Silverman drove a moving truck in the summer of ’97 from the mean streets of Strong Island to the lovely streets of Woodley Park.  Woodley Cafe took a chance on a kid with no serving experience and hired him on the spot. I’ll forever be grateful for that.  Ownership has since changed hands I’m told but they’ll continue to hold a warm place in my heart. I do hope the closure is only temporary. Stay tuned.
