We’ve all seen the rampant construction in the 14th Street area during the last couple of years. At this point it’s almost impossible to ignore. With cranes, trucks and blocked lanes it can get kind of tiring. But one of the upsides of all this work is the influx of new restaurants opening, with more to open in the coming months.
Here’s a short list of the other establishments we can expect soon within walking distance of Vastu:
- Taqueria Nacional
- Stub’s Kitchen & Wine
- Doi Moi
- Ted’s Bulletin
- Black Whiskey
- Piola Pizza
And this is all in addition to the two new restaurants that have opened in the past few months: Le Diplomate and Matchbox 14th Street.

Well, new kids on the street really… 14th Street NW is quickly becoming a destination for both great retail and food. In recent weeks a number of new restaurants have opened and more are slated to come. The Washington Post recently took a detailed look at the influx of restaurants on 14th. Below is a quick look at what’s hapenning on our street.
Cafe Salsa, which serves nuevo Latin cuisine, opened last month. They offer good food, great mojitos and salsa lessons.
One of the toughest reservations to get in the capitol city is at The Gibson, located near the corner of 14th and U Street NW. This hot destination (which opened fall of last year) is a cocktail-focused speakeasy owned by the same folks that own Marvin’s.
There are a number of places planning for openings this summer through the fall. Owner of Busboys and Poets will open Eatonville, a restaurant that pays tribute to author Zora Neale Hurston. The menu will include healthy southern style food. An unnamed seafood restaurant is on it’s way, a coffehouse and even rumors of a sushi bar.
So, if you haven’t been to Midcity in a while - its definitely worth the trip!
