601 2nd Street, NE at F Street
Have you heard anything about Toscana (2nd and F NE, by Union Station) closing? I walked by around 530pm yesterday and there was a sheet over the front door, most of the bench tables outside were gone, and all the tables in the covered porch were stacked. They’re clearly closed today, but maybe just on vacation or renovating? There wasn’t any note to indicate. Would love to know if you’ve heard anything, I don’t want to lose their happy hour!!”
Eater DC reported they closed August 3rd and that: ” It’s expected to undergo a complete renovation — complete with a full bar — and reopen this fall under new ownership.”

“Budding restaurateur Adam Stein is installing the bowling lanes, bar, and video games he originally envisioned for Ivy City inside short-lived Union Social instead, telling Eater that his new entertainment complex, the Eleanor, should be here by late spring.
The biggest modification: putting in four mini bowling lanes — “Think ¾ size duck pin-style lanes, from AMF,” Stein says — a renovation that’s projected to take up to three months. He’s hoping the significant remodel will still allow for around 180 seats inside (current occupancy is 250), plus room for 70-odd people on the outdoor patio.”
