District of Columbia restaurants felt reverberations from Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol by extremists after the mayor imposed a 12-hour curfew.

The attack by pro-Trump extremists on the Capitol interrupted the joint session of Congress that early Thursday accepted the Electoral College vote that cleared the way for Joe Biden’s inauguration as president on Jan. 20.

The storming of the Capitol came amid counting of Georgia special Senate election ballots that shifted leadership of that body from Republican to Democrat with the projected incumbent upsets by Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
