A little over two years after it opened, Foxtrot in Old Town is closed — swept up in a series of closures affecting all locations in the Washington D.C. area.

The shop was a more upscale version of the typical corner store and cafe. The first D.C. location opened in 2021 and it quickly spread around the region before imploding today.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you of a difficult decision we have had to make,” the company said on Facebook. “After much consideration and evaluation, we regret to announce that Foxtrot and Dom’s Kitchen & Market will be closing their doors starting on April 23, 2024.”

The closure affects all 33 Foxtrot locations in D.C. as well as Chicago, Austin and Dallas.

“We explored many avenues to continue the business but found no viable option despite good faith and exhaustive efforts,” the company said.
