Alphonse Closes

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]lphonse opened with much fanfare in U Street just two years ago. The design was amazing and the concept sound.

Sadly without so much of a whisper, Alphonse  closed on Monday.

No reason was giving for shuttering. The owners of Biergarten Haus and Russia House did not provide an explanation.

A note on their door thanked patrons for their support and said they will miss supporting U Street. Alphonse – we will miss you, too.
