Petworth Café Grand Opening is Tomorrow, October 8th

October 7, 2015


According to the signs in the windows, the Petworth Café located on the east side of Georgia Avenue between Quebec Place and Rock Creek Church Road will open for business on Thursday, October 8th. Two of the signs also give an indication on what kind of food they’ll be selling. The business has not applied for a liquor license, so they will not be serving alcohol.



New Cafe Opening Soon at 3657 Georgia Avenue in Park View

August 4, 2015

According to the sign at 3657 Georgia Avenue, the Petworth Cafe will be opening there soon. This is located on the block south of Rock Creek Church Road and next to the old hardware store, where Reliable Tavern and Hardware will be opening. I’ve heard little about this business, though what I’ve heard has been positive. Also, in checking with ABRA they have not applied for a liquor license so far.

Checking Out Slash Run on Upshur

Slash Run at 201 Upshur Street, NW.

After reading Fritz Hahn’s July 24th A Georgia Avenue-Petworth bar crawl with stops at new arrivals Slash Run and Walter’s
(which also gives shout outs to Park View’s DC Reynolds and Walter’s) — and having several people recommend the burgers at Slash Run — I decided it was time to check it out. All it all, it is a very welcoming place.

If you plan to go and eat, you’ll want to plan your visit accordingly as the dining room is smaller but serviceable. There wasn’t a long wait on the night I was there, but I imagine there will be nights when that happens.

I found the burgers to indeed  be good and who can resist waffle fries. Everyone in my party also agreed that what they had was flavorful.

If you’ve been to Slash Run, what was your experience?
