While I was reporting a flurry of good restaurant news on H street last week, this week I’ve got a few bad news reports for you:

First, Vegetate in Shaw is closing at the end of the month, they’ve decided not to renew their lease and are looking for a new local.

California Pizza Kitchen on Connecticut Ave is closing, the Going Out Gurus reports that the BLT empire is bringing in an Italian concept in its place.

Yaku in Arlington, which I never particularly loved to begin with, is changing hands to become a Rock and Roll sushi club concept. Tim Carman over at Young and Hungry has the details.

All I’ve got to say here is that I hope Vegetate gets a new lease. I have a crush on their greasy vegetarian fare. The rest – eh. Such is life.
