    I am also curious about this. A lot of the stories use the word "shuttered." Is it expected that Cafe Atlantico won't return after America Eats exhibit completes? I thought the restaurant was good in the few times that I went. The Sunday Latino dim sum brunch was definitely unique.

      It was actually anounced a few years ago that Cafe Atlantico would close to expand minibar. I was surprised that it took this long.

        "José and ThinkFoodGroup look forward to finding the next home for Café Atlántico. Minibar by josé andrés will continue to operate its six-seat bar on the second floor of the new America Eats. . . . ThinkFoodGroup will begin preparations for the next phase of 405 8th Street, NW, and minibar by josé andrés."
