Because I would love yall to watch the video (and subscribe!), I won’t go into a lot of detail but please know I will be there again because the food, customer service, and craft beers were delicious!
What to Wear
This is not a fancy schmancy place at all. The vibe is lowkey but personable so I would suggest the following:
Ladies: Distressed jeans, low heels (there are alot of stairs to get up there) or cute tennis shoes and tank. In the cooler months, a cute sweater and jeans with knee high boots is just perfect.
Gents: A cool graphic T and camo print shorts or jeans and fitted T with a cool jacket
What to Order
The Burrata Fried Green Tomato
The Bass and Shrimp fettucine
and a flight of their sour beers. Yeah- sour beers. Trust me they will help you find one that you like!
Where to Sit
I suggest a seat close to a window. It makes for the best people watching on 18th St NW in Adams Morgan.
Background on Adams Morgan DC
according to Wikipedia:
Adams Morgan is a neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C., centered at the intersection of 18th Street NW and Columbia Road NW, about 1.5 miles (2.54 km) north of the White House. It is well-known for its broad mix of cultures and activities, including having a noted Hispanic community
Along with its adjacent sister communities to the north and east, Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan long has been a gateway community for immigrants. Since the 1960s, the predominant international presence in both communities has been Latino, with the majority of immigrants coming from El Salvador, Guatemala and other Central Americancountries. Since the early 1970s, like other areas of the nation, Adams Morgan had seen a growing influx of immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, as well. Gentrification and the resulting higher cost of housing, however, have displaced many immigrants and long-time African American residents, particularly those with young children, as well as many small businesses, but the community still retains a degree of diversity, most evident in its array of international shops and restaurants. In the five-square-block area where most of the commercial establishments are located, one can choose from a variety of ethnic cuisines, among them Spanish, Ethiopian, Guatemalan, Mexican, Nepalese, Italian, Dutch, Vietnamese, Ghanaian, Cajun, Brazilian, Palestinian, Peruvian, Indian, Thai, Lebanese, Eritrean, and Chinese.
Adams Morgan also has become a thriving spot for night life, with a number of bars and clubs featuring live music. Over 90 establishments possess liquor licenses, putting it on level with other popular nightlife areas like Georgetown and Dupont Circle. Local stores along the 18th Street corridor were rapidly replaced with late-night establishments, leading to a moratorium on new liquor licenses by the Alcohol Beverage Control Board in 2000 after successful lobbying by resident groups.
