Given my conversations with Dean, I was sad but not surprised to read his email. I had many great dinners at Dino and my wine group enjoyed a couple of extremely raucous nights there as well. That said, I'm extremely please to read that the new place will be nearer to our home. Onwards and upwards!

So I googled the Metro green line stops and thought - boy, I'll miss eating there. 

I didn't realize Dean was moving out to LA ;)

 

Redondo Beach, Howard Rumsey's and The Lighthouse were my stomping grounds of my misguided and... ummm.... well... smoke LA smog clouded college days where I spent more time on jazz and such then economics.  But no, Redondo Beach is not in the future.

Lasagnette? Thank goodness.

 

UWe will of course keep the standards... boar pasta, burrata, lasagnette, cioppino, meatballs on a continuous basis.   

 

Glad to hear the good news about a new spot. I have so many great memories of my meals at Dino.

Sounds like we need to entice Mark to do his part for a rumble at the Uptown in support of whatever place moves into the space and the other restaurants CP will want to retain. Bucher? Bucher? Anyone?


Sorry. Was late to the thread. Kudos to Dean for holding his ground , and to places like Houston's in Georgetown and Rockville who told landlords to take a hike when the rent went sky high upon renewals. An apparent greedy landlord will now sit with a vacancy and loose rent for a period of time and will never get what they think they can. The old saying a "bird in hand" rings true . I'm sorry to loose a great neighbor but glad DC gets to keep an icon. Bravo Dino! Well played sir ..
