Maple Closing March 30, 2019

After seven years in business, Maple will close at the end of March. Our last day will be March 30.

We are extremely grateful for all of the wonderful people who came through our doors over the years. Thank you to the staff, customers, sales reps and vendors, and fellow business owners in Columbia Heights. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this community.

A new Italian restaurant named Ossobuco Ristorante will be taking over the space. We look forward to the opening after the new owners complete some renovations.

We also are moving on to a new venture: opening a winery in Linden, Virginia. We hope to bottle the first vintage at SilverDog Vineyards in the coming year.
