Crepeville, the popular eatery in the heart of midtown, has closed temporarily for routine maintenance.

When word first spread about the closure over the weekend, rumors swirled and fans of the restaurant feared the worst.

But the bad news, if you can call it that, will be short-lived.

“This is just for a week. We need to change some of the equipment,” said co-owner Philippe Masoud early Monday. “It’s mostly maintenance of the equipment, lots of cleaning, whatever needs to be done.”

Workers could already be spotted moving equipment in the restaurant Monday morning. Some patrons showed up at the corner of 18th and L streets only to learn of the closure when they tugged on the door.

Masoud said there is no need to fret. Crepeville will be up and running by the beginning of 2014, at the latest.

“We have renewed our lease and we are going to be there for a long time,” Masoud said. “We will definitely be open by the new year.”
