Capital City Diner: Up All Night
stephanie | Jan 30, 2012 | 9:00AM |

Capital City Diner, one of the best things to happen to Bladensburg road EVER, closed their doors this weekend due to all the reasons you hate to hear: rising costs, flailing economy, a big national restaurant opening just a stone’s throw away.

We recently spent a night there for the first in our “UP ALL NIGHT in DC” series, so enjoy these as a memory of a time that just passed us by:

  • really? says:

    I was pretty sure they were closing for renovations and would be coming back. According to their fb post at least.
    Nice photos though

  • jeff says:

    no excuses for this. poor marketing. they are in a good neighborhood and have an awesome product. there wasn’t enough advertising or marketing, bottom line. that place could have been packed every night.

    what’s next for the location?

    @Really? – Indeed, tis true:

    Great work, Steph. Good tribute to a great diner. Looking forward to the rest of your series.

    I should have made the effort to support them more often than I did, dudes that ran the place were super nice and the food was tasty, even though I did give them shit for not stocking malt powder.
