K Town Bistro Closes Permanently

Updated to reflect that Taco Don Perez will be taking over the location

K Town Bistro, located at 3784 Howard Ave in Kensington, has been listed as “permanently closed” for a few weeks. We have been told the restaurant closed at the beginning of November and the website has been updated to include only the following message: “Thank you for the support these past 12 years. It was a pleasure serving you all. The bistro will be passed on to a new ownership“

Tacos Don Perez will be taking over the location. K Town Bistro opened in 2010, taking over the space that was home to K-Town Grill for a short period of time. The bistro was opened by former Watergate Hotel restaurant manager Gonzalo Barba and served casual international cuisine.

In the last 2.5 years, a GoFundMe fundraiser has raised nearly $15,000 by over 150 donors in support of the restaurant and its staff. Featured photo courtesy of the GoFundMe page.
