A longtime family-owned Caribbean restaurant and lounge has left U Street.

The Islander last week set sail from its location at 1201 U St NW after 46 years of operation.

The closing follows the June departure of “Da Queen” Chef Addie, who worked as the restaurant’s chef since its opening in 1970.

A Borderstan reporter met The Islander owner Curtis Green yesterday afternoon, but Green said he’d rather comment at a later date.

Green did not say what might replace the business.
