Matsutake closes in Ballston Matsutake closes in Ballston

(Updated at 5:10 p.m.) The Matsutake Steak and Sushi restaurants in Ballston and Crystal City have closed for business.

The Crystal City location, at 320 23rd Street S., appears to have closed some time ago — its listing on Yelp is reported closed. The Ballston restaurant may have closed this week, and an eviction notice is posted on the door notifying the restaurant to vacate by yesterday morning. It’s placed next to a sign notifying customers of the restaurant’s closure:

“Boru/Matsutake Restaurant has closed with no plans to re-open in the near future,” it reads. The restaurant was a combination of Matsutake’s hibachi restaurant and a Boru Asian Bistro. “Restaurant is for rent.”

The restaurant is on the ground floor of Stafford Place II, the headquarters of the National Science Foundation, which is moving to Alexandria by 2017.
