A.G. Kitchen Closes in Downtown Silver Spring
Sign directs patrons to New York restaurant
The sign on the doors to A.G. Kitchen say the eatery is "permanently closed."
A.G. Kitchen has “permanently closed,” according to a sign posted on the front door of the downtown Silver Spring restaurant.
The restaurant—which served a mix of Latin, Spanish and American cuisine—opened in June 2015 at 931 Ellsworth Drive, the former site of a Macaroni Grill. It was the latest eatery by New York chef Alex Garcia, who operates several restaurants in New York City, including the original A.G. Kitchen. The sign on the door suggested customers visit the New York A.G. Kitchen.
Garcia is well-known in the dining world. He is credited with helping to popularize “Nuevo Latino” cuisine in New York and was featured on the Food Network show Melting Pot in the early 2000s.
