We found out today that Black & Orange, as famous for their "Open Until 5AM" hours as they are for their past as Rogue States, will be making last call for burgers a little earlier at both of their locations.
They'll still be open late, but the new hours will be:
- until 11pm from Sunday through Wednesday (Dupont will remain open until 3am on Wednesdays)
- until 3am on Thursday
- and (still) 5am on Friday and Saturday.
Just the other day, people were touting the signs that DC had all the signs of a burgeoning young metropolis, ready to become the next round-the-clock city. Then came today's news that both The Hamilton, who had been open 24-hours a day since December 18, and Black & Orange would be pulling back on the reins for their late-night plans.
Guest of a Guest quotes Maureen Hirsch of Clyde's Restaurant Group (which owns The Hamilton): "We thought we could do it, but it was too much. I don't think we will be going back to a 24-hour schedule but you never know."
