Bar Civita will close in Woodley Park by the end of July, according to chef/owner Liam LaCivita.
LaCivita opened the Italian-American eatery in spring 2015 after seven years with the hospitality group behind Liberty Tavern and Lyon Hall. The restaurant’s closure is among several recent shutters in the area. Neighboring Cleveland Park has seen a rash of closings in recent years, with two notable veterans—Ripple and Nam Viet—having permanently locked their doors in June.
We’ve reached out to LaCivita about his next venture, so stay tuned for more details.
