🚨 You need to know

Alexandria Living Magazine first reported that reopening signs are up in the windows of Del Ray Italian restaurant Rosemarino D’Italia (1905 Mt Vernon Avenue).

The restaurant closed the doors of the Del Ray location in July 2021 due to lingering challenges from the Covid pandemic. While the Del Ray location closed, the one in Dupont Circle in D.C. remained open.

Now, signs in the window say the restaurant is coming back. No opening date is posted on the signs or on the restaurant’s social media.

Patch reported in December that the restaurant could have a soft reopening in the Spring, with a revamped interior and a new menu that will initially match the Dupont location, but will eventually branch off into something different.
