The owners of The Dizz are staying put. Last September, Darlene and Thomas L. Basta Jr. listed the restaurant for sale and said they were ready to retire after 10 years of owning the Remington rowhouse bar and eatery.

“We are grateful to our wonderful clients, great employees and the Remington Community,” they said in a statement at the time. “It has been an honor and pleasure serving you and watching our Remington Community grow! We could not have done this without you.”
