Court Records: BlackFinn Owes $129,000 In Rent

Shuttered BlackFinn American Saloon in Bethesda

The shuttered BlackFinn American Saloon owes nearly $130,000 in rent, according to a lawsuit filed last week by the restaurant’s landlord.

White Flint Express LLC, a holding company part of property owner Greenhill Capital, filed suit against BlackFinn last Friday in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

The landlord alleges that BlackFinn owes $129,492.01 in rent through April.

The popular bar and restaurant on a prominent corner of Woodmont Triangle did not open for business on Tuesday, April 1. The next day, it announced through its website that it was permanently closed.

Multiple attempts to reach Paul Derrico, one of the restaurant owners listed in a similar lawsuit over late rent in 2012, have been unsuccessful. Derrico opened the restaurant at 4901 Fairmont Ave. in 2007.

The restaurant remains locked down, with signs advising locksmiths not to attempt change the locks without permission from Greenhill Capital.
