This is crazy, a reader reports on Saturday:
“Another casualty on 19th St between K and L. They’re packing it up today.”
This Bold Bite only opened back in October. This space is also formerly home to a Red Robin and Boloco burritos.
A call to the store immediately goes to a “user not available” message. The location is still listed on their website. Did anyone happen to notice if they were open this morning?

“I noticed that construction workers were putting up signage at the old Eatsa place at 17th/K NW. According to the signs, it’s a place called Taqueria/Local Taqueria. Their website just has a coming soon and a way to apply for jobs. Hopefully it’ll last longer than Eatsa!”
Eatsa’s “fully-automated faster food experience” closed back in October. Updates as the Taqueria gets closer to opening.
