Ristorante Posto at 1515 14th Street, NW opened in December 2008 and is still a novelty in the area. They serve classic and modern Italian dishes, wood oven pizzas and focaccia. Its prices are in the upper mid range.

Cafe Saint-EX crowns the southeast side corner of 14th and T Streets NW. It is one of the pioneer businesses of its kind in Borderstan on 14th Street. They offer a delicious mix of American-Bistro style cuisine… always a good alternative in the area.
