I am sure most of you saw this on Sietsema's chat today, but thought I would post just in case...
Maxim restaurant near the White House has shuttered, co-owner Constantin Costa wrote me in an email last week. "Over the past three years, we have struggled trying to keep it open, but a poor location, insufficient capital, and some general bad business decisions proved to be too much for Alexandra (Costa) and I to handle. We couldn't make it work as a restaurant, so
we tried to shift gears into a lounge type, almost
nightclub atmosphere, which worked very well
financially. Unfortunately it was a little too late."
