A wood fire kitchen and whiskey bar on Columbia Pike will close at the end of the year, staff confirmed.
Marble and Rye at 2501 Columbia Pike will close on December 31. A staff member said it will shutter after Sunday brunch that day. Staff in the restaurant declined to comment on a reason for the closure.
It opened in late 2015 at the Penrose Square property, replacing RedRocks Neapolitan Bistro.
The menu features pasta, pizza and seafood dishes as well as sandwiches and burgers. It has more than 150 different whiskeys and whiskey-based cocktails, in addition to its wine and beer selection.
When it opened, Marble and Rye had been hailed as part of a growth of whiskey bars on Columbia Pike.
Events company Magnolia Open Mics will host its final open mic night at Marble and Rye this Sunday (December 17), in conjunction with the Songwriters Association of Washington. The event begins at 6 p.m., and includes a raffle.
