Permit at old Seafood & Crab

Walking by the other day I couldn’t help but notice the windows papered and a permit on the old Seafood & Crab joint.

Prince of Petworth heard via a commenter that the space might become a Chicago hot dog place. I was unable to learn anything about the agents listed on the permit through Google. The Jenco Group is a real estate agency located in DC and I couldn’t find anything about Malligan Associates Limited Partnership. The permit is for interior demolition and removal of exterior awning.

Seafood & Crab no more

I walked by the Seafood and Crab restaurant below U street on 14th last night, and while they still have their long running¬†“grand opening” sign up, they appeared to be very closed. Lights off and doors locked at around 6 pm and it seemed like their counter/kitchen space had been gutted. Unfortunately, if they are closed I don’t think many people will be mourning¬†their closure.

UPDATE: Yup, it’s closed and there is a for lease sign, RIP restaurant who had a grand opening for at least 6 years.
