Zinnia, the restaurant and beer/wine garden that took over the Mrs. K’s location in Silver Spring, has announced that it will be closed until Wednesday, December 29th, after an employee tested positive for Covid-19.
Per Zinni’a Instagram:
An employee of ours has tested positive and out of precautionary measures, we will be closed until at least next Wednesday, December 29th and when all of our staff has received a negative test. We will be reaching out to everyone with reservations this weekend, and can hopefully have you all come join us before the New Year. Thank you all for understanding and wishing everyone a happy, healthy holiday.
Zinnia announced Wednesday that they will now be requiring proof of vaccination (either physical card or photo of card must be shown before entering) in order to dine inside the restaurant.
Zinnia, which had its grand opening on October 1st, is located at 9201 Colesville Rd in Silver Spring, the former site of Mrs. K’s Tollhouse.
According to their website, “at Zinnia, patrons can get excited for a beer and wine garden, cafè, tavern, and fine dining restaurant,” and that guests can enjoy options from a beer truck and an outdoor bar.
The restaurant will also feature an all day cafè that is “expected to serve sandwiches, pastries, coffee, and more” and that guests should be on the lookout for some twists on some of Mrs. K’s favorites dishes.
Mrs. K’s Tollhouse, one of the most well-know restaurants in Silver Spring, closed in March 2020 after initial COVID-19 restrictions were enacted.
The restaurant was opened in 1930 by Harvey and Blanche Kreuzburg and served food to guests for 90 years. The restaurant was operated by members of the Kreuzberg family until ownership changed hands in 1996.
