The location was previously split between TTT and Mexican sit-down restaurant Buena Vida, which were both owned by the same hospitality group (Street Guys Hospitality). Buena Vida closed in August, 2020 and TTT took over the remaining portion as a way of offering more delivery and carryout options, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Owner Ivan Iricanin told Washingtonian that Buena Vide/TTT had struggled ever since Discovery left Downstown Silver Spring in 2018, saying “Our lunch and happy hour was all Discovery. We had that loss, which was hard to recover, and then we got Covid. And now we have some expansion plans and I needed to narrow my focus”.
TTT’s Clarendon, VA location will remain open.
