Tru Orleans Shuttered by Office of Tax & Revenue
Tru Orleans by Philliefan99
Last week brought news that local Cajun restaurant Tru Orleans is facing eviction for unpaid rent (over $40,000) with Washington City Paper reporter Jessica Sidman also covering the extremely long list of ABRA complaints against the establishment. These allegations are varied, but include a recent street brawl involving more than 30 people who had been drinking there (as well as staff members).
This afternoon ANC 6C04 Commissioner Mark Eckenwiler tweeted a photo of a notice that the restaurant has been shut down by OTR for unpaid sales and use taxes.
BREAKING: TruOrleans closed per order posted by Ofc of Tax & Revenue. @pavethewhales @jsidman pic.twitter.com/GIaXxYDabrSidman reports that Tru Orleans owes in excess of $100,000 to OTR. Sidman says she has a lot more to write about the saga. It looks like things are about to get very interesting.
