D.C. has seen a rash of high-profile restaurants shutter over the past couple months. Rising rents and a boom of competition mean if you can’t get Washington’s discerning diners to eat, you’ll be eaten. Restaurant lifespans, after all, are notoriously short even in good times. (Restaurant years are kind of like dog years in that way.) Here’s a look at some of the establishments that have closed or are closing soon, and how long they lasted:
