A longtime 19th Street hangout has a new name.
Rumors, the bar and grill at 1900 M St. NW, is now called “District Anchor.” Signs advertising the new name went up recently.
Patrick Morrogh, who owns Arlington’s crab-centric eatery the Quarterdeck, took over the business earlier this year. The plan is for the newly rebranded restaurant to serve seafood under the District Anchor banner during the day and sling drinks as Rumors late into the night.
So far, however, all that’s changed is the name. The restaurant will begin to roll out changes to its menu next spring, according to general manager Paul Kolokousis.
“We plan on being a crab house for lunch and dinner and continuing our DJ, dancing and drinks for late night in the Rumors tradition,” Kolokousis said.
