Downtown Restaurant Panache Closes, Promises ‘Fresh Idea’ This Fall

A downtown restaurant known for Mediterranean-style tapas has closed its doors, for now.

Panache (1725 Desales St. NW) shuttered Wednesday, Aug. 31, according to a sign on its door. The restaurant operated in that location for more than 12 years.

“We are so thankful to our co-workers, local partners, family and our friends who have made the experience of running Panache so memorable,” the sign reads. “To everyone who has become part of the Panache family — don’t think of this as a goodbye. Think of it as see you later.”

But eatery may not stay closed for long, the sign continues:

“Join us again this fall for a fresh idea on DeSales Street to serve you.”

We were unable to reach the owners of Panache for more information on what’s in store. We’ll update this story if we hear back from them.
