I ordered a delicious shrimp curry here along with a good glass of reasonably priced Argentinian wine. Also tried fried green tomatoes. The menu vacillated between familiar choices and some more exciting specials. The lovely mural in the wall, friendly staff and generally cheerful environment...More

This small quaint restaurant provided a delicious meal. It was so good, I couldn’t put my fork down. The salmon was cooked to perfection. It was flaky and moist which melted in my palate. Just heavenly.

Great breakfast (try the Juanita’s breakfast for a terrific authentic flavor), great coffee, authentic neighborhood feel, cool music, great vibe, and good prices. You just can’t find a better breakfast in DC.

This little hidden gem on 14th Street is one of the best places to experience soul food. The menu is small but the variety is outstanding from chicken and waffles for breakfast to sandwiches, salads, and great southern gumbo and shrimp and grits. Staff is...More

Small and laid back defines Highlands. The food is excellent, staff attentive, and service is unreal quick(by the time you order and sit food is on the way). All entrees around $10-12. Nice murals on walls to muse at, good music, and alcohol.

I went at night and no table outside then. I know they have a few tables on the side walk. As a rule of thumb, I saw people with dogs on the side walk seating in other places. If you have to tie the dog at a post, the... More
