Bar di Bari Will Close at the End of This Weekend


Last call for coffee and pastries at Bar di Bari. Restaurateur Aaron Gordon is closing down his "European-style" cafe on 14th Street NW to make way for a new undisclosed concept on Sunday, Jan. 26. Still no word on exactly what Gordon will replace Bar di Bari with except that it will be called Red Light.

Gordon, who also owns Drafting Table, Red Velvet Cupcakery, and Tangysweet, opened Bar di Bari last June.

UPDATE: Red Light is slated to open sometime in late March or early April.

    Did anyone not see this coming? For someone with several other successful restaurants this place was a dud from the get go...

    One of the chief problems with this joint is that the food offerings were essentially like those from the Whole Foods prepared foods counter. Whatever is next needs to distinguish itself a little more. Breakfast would be cool, and I think the corridor has enough Italian for now. And probably enough tapas.
