Butcher’s Block on King Street Closing Within Two Weeks

Butcher's Block at the Lorien Hotel in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

This news in the King Street corridor comes on top of Notting Hill Restaurant and Bar closing its doors as well as Ireland’s Own (a.k.a. Pat Troy’s). My question on this news is, could this have something to do with the upcoming construction next door? What do you think? According to the report below, there are plans to lease out the space. What do you think would work there?

Robert Wiedmaier’s gourmet shop, The Butcher’s Block is going to close up shop on June 28. According to a statement from Kimpton Hotels, which operates the property, the company wants to keep its focus on Brabo and The Tasting Room, both located at the Lorien Hotel & Spa.

“Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, in conjunction with Robert Wiedmaier, is committed to working with all current employees of The Butcher’s Block to find other potential job opportunities within the company. Meanwhile, BRABO and The Tasting Room remain dedicated to serving the Old Town Alexandria community,” the company said in a statement.

This has nothing to do with the construction. It is going be be leased out for 3rd party retail.
