Looks like it.

“Grand Trunk is a premier South Asian – Modern American restaurant located in the heart of Washington D.C. We serve gourmet food fast in a luxury setting.”

All their social media stops in November and a call to the restaurant just rings and rings. Thanks to Andrew for reporting: “Grand Trunk (RIP) I think it took longer to get open than it stayed open. Looked like some construction/work was going on inside. Signage is down too.”
