After nearly 8 years in Forest Hills, Jake’s American Grille (5018 Connecticut Avenue) closed its doors for good on Sunday, January 20th. But before doing so, the restaurant invited the community to a weekend wake.

First word came via PoPville, which got the word from ANC 3F Commissioner Monika Nemeth. She tells PoPville, “Apparently lease negotiations fell apart. They will be sorely missed.”
The restaurant’s name and naval theme were based on the owner’s grandfather. The upstairs dining area was decorated with photos of Jake Jablonski’s family and U.S. Navy life.
Our final trivia was amazing and we thank our trivia family for making it a great send off! Jake’s will close for good January 20th. We thank our amazing regulars for making this a fun spot! pic.twitter.com/tAL0iD2ekm
