Cleveland Park certainly saw a weekend chock full of food-related public safety activity! First, Medium Rare, which recently opened on the Connecticut Avenue strip, reported a robbery early Saturday morning, when the assailant, according to neighborhood blog Cleveland Park 2.0, “pointed a gun at the two employees and demanded money. The employees gave the man money and he left through the front door, at which point an employee contacted police. Police did not immediately find the man.”
Then, on Sunday, there was possible trouble at Palena up the street. According to tweets from D.C. Fire and Emergency Services, an odor was investigated, but it was determined that there was no fire emergency. Unlucky timing for Palena’s first Sunday brunch!
