There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
The difficult comeback of Morgan’s Seafood on Georgia Avenue (“King Crab,” 11/8) got even tougher on Nov. 5. That afternoon, owner Romeo Morgan says, burglars crawled through a window, opened the side door, and did the most thorough looting yet of the hard-luck carryout. By the time Morgan got word of the break-in that evening, the restaurant—which he says had been three weeks away from its long-delayed reopening—was cleaned out. Among the items taken: $5,000 worth of power tools, several cases of bottled soda, all the pots and pans, every utensil, four deep freezers, three deep fryers, a 10-foot prep table, a new dryer, and 200 pounds of frozen fish fillet. And the kitchen sink. “It was a three-compartment sink,” Morgan says. “It was mounted to the wall.” —Annys Shin
