Much-loved local eatery and bar the Midtown Kitchen & Bar has closed its doors permanently. The Kensington spot, known for its comfort eats, wine, beer, and spirits menu, operated at 302 10 Street NW for six years. The Midtown made the announcement in late April, citing both the pandemic and “difficult landlords” as the reason for its shuttering.
