Alfie’s Thai Pop-Up Will Close in July

All good pop-ups must come to an end, and that time is July 31st for Alfie’s. The Thai venture from chef Alex McCoy has been a Park View hotspot since opening in February—though even then its fate was undetermined. Originally the concept was slated for Petworth.

Don’t cry over your ant larvae omelet just yet. McCoy plans to move Alfie’s to a larger, more permanent space—location TBA—while moving a new concept into 3301 Georgia Avenue, Northwest immediately following Alfie’s departure. The next restaurant theme is also TBA, but we have our fingers crossed for Lucky Buns, McCoy’s pop-up-within-a-pop-up burger joint that operates on Sundays. Stay tuned.
