Yesterday we learned that a Planta was confirmed coming to the West End. Now a reader sends some scuttlebutt that:

“apparently they are putting in a Planta in the former Phillips on P/15. Menu seems pretty good.”

Phillips Seafood and Street Carts opened here (15th and P) in June 2019 and closed in November 2020. Tortilla Coast closed here back in 2017. Prior to Tortilla Coast this prime space was home to McCormick Paints.

Thanks to Ishaba and others who send word that the Philz in Dupont is closing on Apr 30th. One reader wrote:

Philz opened here to much excitement back in 2018. Prior to them this was the home to a Cosi that closed back in 2014. Updates when we learn more.
