Bryan Voltaggio's Aggio location in D.C. closes

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.

The Frederick native also operates Family Meal in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, as well as other restaurants in Frederick, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia.
