Sad Demise of Palena

Marty L. | Apr 26, 2014 07:50 AM

Sad to say, it's true. (Rent issues, apparently.) Today is the final day for perhaps the best, most convivial, least pretentious great restaurant in D.C. I will miss it dearly. We collectively owe Frank Ruta a huge debt of gratitude for 14+ amazing years. I hope his next endeavor will be here in D.C., and that we will be able to relish those ethereal consommés for many years to come.
