A long time stalwart on 7th Street, Mehak Indian Cuisine (817 7th St NW), is now closed. All the restaurant furniture is gone, one of the front windows is damaged, and workers could be seen moving in and out of the vacant first floor. A PQ Living reader wrote Mehak to see if they’ll reopen but they responded that they lost their lease, thanked the community for 25 years of support, and to visit Masoi, another Indian restaurant on K St NW. Ed. Note: The phone number for Mehak has now been disconnected too.
We visited Mehak a few times over more than a decade of living downtown. One more old school DC restaurant is now out of the neighborhood.
