Opera (aka Kuna) Goes on Vacation

In other U Street news, Opera (aka Kuna) has closed for summer vacation, which will probably spark rumors that they've closed for good. Last summer Kuna took about a month off—causing closing rumors—and returned as Opera. With a new menu and slightly higher prices, business seemed a little sluggish. Protests from loyal customers over menu changes prompted a slow return to the old Kuna menu. (The menu even said "Opera AKA Kuna" at the top.)

There's no message when you call with any details about a return date. I, for one, will be crossing my fingers and hoping this cozy neighborhood joint returns.

i hope they bring back the food (and name) from the old Kuna!

Agreed! Though I did like the steak tartar they tried for a little while and the charcuterie plate...

during the past couple of days i saw some construction work undergoing at Opera - are they really taking a vacation or hopefully returning as Kuna?

I am also keeping my eyes on Creme...

looks like some new (bright!) yellow paint going up. I guess we'll see in a few weeks how they make their comeback...
