It looks very bad. The early morning five-alarm fire in Mt. Vernon Place has caused extensive fire and water damage to the Park Plaza Professional Building, which houses Donna's and Indigma on the the street level and My Thai on the lower level. Fire Chief Jim Clack told me that it's going to be "a while" before any of the restaurants reopens. "You mean a week or two," I asked him. He said, "oh no, much longer than that."
It's very sad. I'm hoping that the Donna's staff can pick up shifts at the other Donna's restaurants. I'm thinking the employees of the other two restaurants won't have that option.
