The news came after a notice on the restaurant’s website warned that LivingSocial vouchers should be redeemed before October 31. Restaurant partner Romeo Santos—who with co-owner Mark Weiss also owns new coffee shop Bean & Bite on 15th Street, Northwest—followed up with the PoP to say that Againn would not be closing on the 3rd.
But on Sunday, November 4, an announcement appeared on Againn’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter feed that it would be shuttering after all. “It is with regret that we announce the closure of AGAINN,” it reads. “After weeks of deliberation with our investors we have decided to close. We want to thank the great city of Washington for its support over the last three years. We have been honored to serve all who have come into AGAINN. We will miss all of the wonderful people in this city!” The statement is attributed to Santos.
We have contacted both partners and will update here with more information as soon as possible.
