2017 UPDATE, scroll to the bottom:
Lily Matini just shared the news with me today, about the loss of the iconic restaurant in Portsmouth Virginia. I have many fond memories of dining at the circle, the historic Art Deco piano bar in Portsmouth Virginia.
I had many opportunities to visit the circle while stationed The USS Theodore Roosevelt, when it was in the Portsmouth shipyard for maintenance. The circle was only a short drive from the shipyards and a fun place to visit for dinner.
