701 is closing after tomorrow night. One of the stalwarts of the last 30 years.

a few others shut their doors in 2018
J Paul's (35 years) not very good, not sure how it lasted so long, suspect money laundering
Maketo (26 years) Not know by most because it was in the foxhall/Palisades by Sibley...but I had a very good lunch there once and meant to return one day
Hen Quarter - not surprising with this review...spring of 2017 received a stinging review from Tom Sietsema. "the service makes you want to run as fast as you can somewhere else," and "deviled eggs appear to be filled with mustard-flavored grout."

The restaurant owner who asked for 1-star Yelp reviews

I ate Roy Boys for lunch today...OG Chicken sandwich was very good. Will return before a club show (Stereolab?) to try other menu items.

Small space, extensive bar. I bet that place gets crazy at night tho.

The menu didn't list ice cream tacos as a separate item, but advised prospective diners to inquire within. I failed to do so, and instead went to Pitango for their pistachio gelato. Highly recommended. 4 stars.

One of my most favorite lunch places. Will be missed.
