Titan of Trinidad (typically a satirical blog) has a photo up of a sign outside Tru Orleans (400 H Street) saying the New Orlean themed restaurant/bar has temporarily shut down (the sign says "Closed until further notice"). Here's the original tweet from @montyhobbs. Here's a link to their Yelp page, which shows their overall rating as two stars.
I answered a reader email last week asking if the restaurant had closed, and we both confirmed (she drove by it later) that it was still operating.
