Soup Up Bethesda, the organic soup-focused restaurant that opened in October in Bethesda, will close at the end of April.

The restaurant made the announcement last week on its Facebook page. The restaurant previously announced it would start closing on weekends.

“It was an exciting opportunity to open our first brick and mortar location, and we have loved being a part of the Bethesda community,” the Facebook post said. “We will continue serving our homemade, nutritious soups at our original location in Union Market—just a short metro ride or drive away from Bethesda.”

Owner Donna Henry brought the concept to Bethesda’s PeriPoint building last fall from Union Market, the Washington, D.C., food market home to more than 40 artisan food vendors.

The Bethesda restaurant offered large bowls of soups for $9, $11 and $13. But the concept apparently never caught on with customers.

The restaurant’s space, in the first floor of a building separated from Woodmont Triangle by traffic-congested Old Georgetown Road, was left empty in November 2014 when a high-end electronics retailer left.
