D.C. burger joint finds new home

By Washington Post editors

Burger fans rejoice!

The Dupont Circle burger joint forced to close its doors after a D.C. law firm complained that fumes from the restaurant's grill were making employees ill, has found a new home.

The Prince of Petworth (via Moneyblog) reports that Rouge States will re-open near U Street, at 1931 14th St. N.W.

No word yet on when the burger shop will re-open. A post on Rogue State's website says simply:

DEAR FRIENDS,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN RECENT DAYS. WE ARE WORKING HARD TO REOPEN OUR DOORS AND BRING BACK THE BEST BURGERS IN THE CITY

CHEF RAYNOLD MENDIZABAL

So, the thugs at the law firm managed to force a business to spend money to move. I hope (laughing) the bullies help to defray some of the cost for this small business to relocate.

Unintentional But Funny (?) Typo Dept.: The burger shop is called ROGUE States. "ROUGE States" would equate to "red states". I suspect the proprietors wish to market their wares to red-staters and blue-staters alike.

On the other hand, it may be true that red-staters (and their sympathizers) engage in most of the burger-and-fry consumption.

I hope the empty space next to the lawyers will be used to store manure.

What do you bet these lawyers wanted one of their buddies/rich clients, etc. to have the space, and made up the 'sick' allegations to force the restaurant to move out?
Watch the building and see what type of business moves into where Rogue States used to be.
