La Tasca Has Closed in Clarendon

(Update at 1:35 p.m.) Spanish tapas restaurant chain La Tasca has closed its Clarendon location.

The two-floor restaurant, at the corner of Wilson Blvd and N. Fillmore Street, served its last customers on Saturday, we’re told. Workers could be seen removing furniture and peeling off lettering on the windows this morning.

An employee said La Tasca was closing because its lease was expiring, but the company is reportedly exploring the possibility of reopening somewhere nearby.

La Tasca originated in the UK but has several D.C. area locations. The now-closed Clarendon location recently hosted a “pop up concept” called Txuleton by La Tasca, which specialized in “Basque steaks (Txuletones) as well as pintxos and tapas.”

La Tasca is expected to be replaced by a new taqueria concept from the team behind Ambar and Baba, across the street.
