EatBar Says Goodbye to Barracks Row – Hello to 1401 PA Avenue
by Larry Janezich
A pair of tweets Friday afternoon from EatBar – part of the Michael Babin’s multi-faceted Neighborhood Restaurant Group – announced the restaurant’s departure from Barrack Row. Its last day will be Friday, March 15. The tweet hints at a future venue on Capitol Hill, and that venue is going to be part of the food hall comint to CAS Riegler’s huge mixed use project at 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.

The loss is a double one – not only for the nearby community, but also for the troubled 400 block of Barracks Row. ANC6D has established a new Taskforce to address Barracks Row issues. The first meeting will be at 7:00pm on Tuesday, March 7, in the ground floor conference room of the Hine Project, at 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. The purpose of the group is to identify and drill down on the retail challenges on Barracks Row, especially the 400 block.

It is with great sadness that we share this news: EatBar’s last day of service will be Friday, March 15th. EatBar holds a special place in our hearts (so nice we did it twice!) as it does for so many of you. We hope you will visit us over the next week to say goodbye 👋😥
It has been a pleasure to serve in the #CapitolHillNeighborhood, and we will miss our dear friends @ChikoFRC @RosesLuxury @HanksOysterBar ++. Fear not, we have more in store for @redapronbutcher & Capitol Hill…
