Elo’s Italian at 1603 Commonwealth Avenue in Del Ray will close at the end of the month, Patch reported.

Owners Justus Frank and Jeremy Barber announced the restaurant, which started as a pop-up in spring 2021, will shut down after March 31.

Patch noted that Frank and Barber’s other Del Ray restaurant, The Garden, will remain open.

Meanwhile, Tex-Mex restaurant Dos Amigos will move into the location afterward — though it will be renamed Dos Hermanos due to the proximity of another restaurant called Dos Amigos by the Braddock Road Metro station, Washington Business Journal reported.
