Italian Restaurant Posto Closes in Logan Circle

The 14th Street corridor has entered a post-Posto era.

The Italian restaurant located at 1515 14th Street NW served its last plate of pasta on Saturday night, co-owner and executive chef Massimo Fabbri told us yesterday evening.

“We’ve been in litigation with the landlord because of construction and we just weren’t getting along,” Fabbri said. “So we just decided to move on.”

Fabbri said the space that formerly held the restaurant was recently purchased by real estate company Sotheby’s, which has plans to turn it into an office.

Posto, which opened in 2008, was once known as a popular hangout for local celebrities, notably some first-term Obama administration officials like David Axelrod and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

  1. Are the new owners planning to turn this space into a “Posto Office”?

  2. This is terrible news. The last thing 14th Street is another realtor’s office, which contributes nothing to street life. Retail, not realtors!
