“the owner said they’re a few weeks from closing if their fortunes don’t improve”

2309 Calvert Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I went to Afghan Grill for dinner in Woodley Park and the owner said they’re a few weeks from closing if their fortunes don’t improve. Apparently, convention goers at the Marriott Wardman Park accounted for 60% of their business, and they’re down over $200k in business as compared to a “normal”, pre-pandemic year.

Several other restaurants in Woodley Park have closed for the same reason, and I would hate for the Afghan Grill to meet the same fate.”

Check out and order from their menu here.

“Afghan grill serves the finest middle eastern and mediterranean dishes in the Washington D.C area since 1981. We serve a variety of different Afghan favorites, including the finest and most authentic kabobs. Not to mention many regional dishes such as our critically acclaimed pumpkin, and chicken! We constantly strive to use the finest ingredients including many local farmers and seasonal spices.

We welcome your whole family to our family owned restaurant. We serve only the finest Halal meats and offer vegan/vegetarian options. If you are new to Middle Eastern food we welcome you to an authentic experience. If you’re in a rush to eat with no time to dine in, not a problem! You can call us or order online any delicious dish that is on the menu or if you desire we will gladly prepare your meal however you like. Fresh and ready for pickup or delivery!”
