Current Status:  Chef Michael Rafridi had a hit on his hands with Albi when COVID took the wind out of the sales of the restaurant industry.  Albi is now gearing back up to serve its open-flame, cooking from the Levant.  We did not get to try it before the shutdown, but based on Rafridi’s prior work we’re confident that you will probably be happy.  The Patio is open for sit-down service, reservations here.  They are doing take-out of the menu.  They are also doing Family Dinners available on Tock. They are open Wednesday through Sunday, 4 pm to 8 pm.  Their daytime café, called Yellow, is open 9 am to 2 pm.

Washington Post: Tom was positive, but the review came out on March 13, 2020, blunting its impact.

Washingtonian: Preview – no thread?
