Bryan Voltaggio's first Aggio location in Washington, D.C., has closed its doors.
The fine-dining Italian space opened in February 2014 as a separate concept within Voltaggio's farm-to-table restaurant Range in D.C.
The Baltimore Aggio location, which opened in June 2014 at 614 Water St., remains open.
Hilda Staples, a spokeswoman for Voltaggio, said the D.C. restaurant was never intended to stay open long-term.
"It's not necessarily a closure. As DC Aggio was [n]ever meant to be a permanent fixture," Staples wrote in an email. "We had it as a pop up and testing for the current Aggio in Baltimore."
She said the space would now be used for private events and perhaps, in the future, other pop-up dining ventures.
Despite the D.C. location's closure, Voltaggio has more restaurants in the works. He and his brother Michael Voltaggio are preparing to open their first restaurant together, a steakhouse at the MGM National Harbor casino in Prince George's County.
