I called the restaurant at noon to ask if they’d be closing permanently and they told me that they would not be closing. When I called again with the same question at 5:00pm, the gentleman that answers the phone told me that today would be their last day.
I enjoyed the food at Yamas, but only made it over a couple times in the 7+ years it has been around. I wish the owners the best of luck with their future endeavors.
Bethesda Beat reports that a Greek-style fast food restaurant will be replacing Yamas. I asked management over at Cava about it and they told me it won’t be Cava. I’m still waiting to hear back from Mezeh Grill. A couple people have told me that it could be GRK Fresh Greek that moves in.
