I noticed Plaza del Sol was closed this past weekend, and then again last night. The Mexican restaurant on St. Elmo Avenue opened to positive reviews last year, and there was no indication the business was in trouble.
But last night, I found the ominous note below attached to the front of the restaurant.
In essence, it says the restaurant is closed indefinitely, but that the owners would like to reopen "once we have resolved matters."
What those matters are, they have not shared. But the note says they cannot access the telephone or voicemail for the restaurant, which suggests they are locked out of the building.
Hopefully they can get whatever the issues are resolved. Plaza del Sol has perhaps become best-known for its weekly flamenco concerts, featuring guitarist Miguelito and a revolving cast of dancers, a rare find in downtown Bethesda.
