Java Green and Cafe Green

According to the Washington City Paper, both Java Green and Cafe Green have been closed by the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue for owing over $133,000 in back taxes. Apparently, the restaurants are seeking donations of $50 and $100 to help pay their tax bill. In return, Cafe Green is promising a 5% discount.

This is indeed a sad day for DC vegans and vegetarians, and will be even sadder if Cafe Green and Java Green are unable to reopen. We have been regular customers of these two establishments, and while we always were annoyed with the poor service, the food (usually) trumped those concerns.

As of this morning, the Java Green website was down.
