An Italian eatery and its “restaurant within a restaurant” are closed on U Street.
Alphonse Italian Market and Osteria (1212 U St. NW) and its upscale sister eatery, Nonna’s Kitchen, appear to have shuttered on Monday, according to signs posted to the front door of the business.
“We wish to thank you for your patronage and support and we will miss serving the U Street neighborhood,” the signs read.
Both restaurants opened two years ago.
We were unable to reach the owners of the restaurants to confirm the closure. We’ll update this story if we hear back from them.
