District Soul Food on Barracks Row Falls Victim to Pandemic

District Soul Food is closed.  David Roundtree, the restaurant’s chief operation officer, told Capitol Hill Corner this morning, “We’re moving”, adding that details on the move would be forthcoming. 

The restaurant opened in February of 2019 bringing “soul food with a French connection” – to Barracks Row.  At the time, Roundtree said they were trying to set themselves apart by offering a full service restaurant with live music and a cigar lounge all in one.

The restaurant has struggled during the pandemic  and the health and safety restrictions imposed by mayoral order. 

The restaurant joins a host of other Capitol Hill restaurants which closed because of the COVID virus, including, Montmartre, 7th Hill Pizza, Aqua al 2, Capitol Lounge, Emilie’s, Wisdom, Finn McCool’s, Tortilla Coast, and Hank’s Oyster Bar.
