According to the Capitol Morning Report, the building management for 925 L informed owners Mitesh & Kavita Bulsara that their lease would not be renewed.
The Bulsaras had owned the cafe since 2003, when they purchased it from previous owners.
Trish Marietti of the building management company told the Capitol Morning Report that they will reconfigure their first floor area to allow for a larger restaurant to go in, one that might offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour.
Marietti said that they do not yet have an owner lined up, but were motivated to make the change due to the coming downtown arena.
This is at least the second K street restaurant to be squeezed out by the new Kings arena. The first restaurant to announce they were closing due to rising rents was Blimpie's located on K street between 10th and 11th streets.
