Poste Moderne Brasserie will close its doors in Penn Quarter after 14 years. The Hotel Monaco restaurant, operated by the Kimpton group, announced that current chef Kyoo Eom will remain in place for a new concept.

The outdoor patio will shutter on April 25, and undergo construction, which will include a glass atrium for year-round entertaining in the courtyard. The restaurant will also discontinue lunch on the 25th, followed by a full closure on May 31.

This isn’t the only recent change for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Washington. The group recently closed Alexandria’s Morrison House for a multi-million dollar renovation and new restaurant, Ashlar. Over in Logan Circle, Hotel Helix is being remodeled as Mason & Rook, and will feature a car-themed cocktail bar aptly-named Radiator, slated to open this spring.

Stay tuned for what will replace Poste.
