Thanks to Ethan for sending Saturday: “Signage from Bobby’s Burger Bar on K street being removed”
Bobby’s Burger Palace opened on K Street in August 2011.
At the moment this location is still listed as temporarily closed on their website. Obviously the sign coming down is never a good sign, updates when/if the closure is announced as permanent.

It’s been five years since the acclaimed Palena closed its doors and the beloved burger graced the tables of DC dinners, and we miss it. Amber Bursik, chef at DC9, whom cooked at Palena for several years and cooked many of those Palena burgers herself thought this was the way she and DC9 could spread some holiday cheer to their guests.

Thanks to a reader for sending this rendering they found for 700 H Street, NE. First I’m hearing of this so not sure if this is still planned. The lettering is kind of small – does it look like it says delivering in 2017? Of course those dates often change but there is also a Shake Shack not too far away in Union Station. I’ll be sure to update if we learn more, STAY TUNED.
