As I read posts from people asking about restaurants that used to be in D.C. but are now gone, I'd like to pose 2 queries.
1) Does anybody remember an Italian restaurant called Pepinos (sp?) somewhere in Georgetown? I went there with my parents many years ago (1986 or so?) when we came to D.C. on vacation. They still talk about how much they enjoyed it to this day. I'd love to know where it was located and what became of it.
2) More recently (3 or 4 years ago) there was a Russian restaurant in Georgetown called Balalyka. That too is gone, but I remember the owner telling us they have a store where you can buy their sausage and other Russian treats. Does this ring a bell with anyone?
