Birch & Barley and ChurchKey at 1337 14th Street NW are two new additions to the 14th Street corridor of restaurants and bars. Birch & Barley offers what sounds like as a delicious menu in the high-priced range. Both of these places offer an extensive list of beers. We are still waiting to go. Let us know what you think.

Masa 14 is at 1825 14th Street NW and is another new addition to the neighborhood, offering Latin-Asian inspired cuisine in small plate offerings. Ever since its soft opening last week the place has been full every night (I walk by regularly). It is beautiful inside and I was able to photograph it last Sunday. Reservations are recommended. Again, we are still waiting to go; let us know what you think if you have already been.

Teaism at 2009 R Street NW is a favorite around the neighborhood with a nice selection of teas and wonderful food. Perfect for a weekend brunch with a great and fast service—I had a very good meal last Sunday.

Men’s Parties… Metropole Sales… 14th Street Restaurants


The Sexist at the Washington City Paper has the latest info on “Men’s Parties” at 1618 14th Street NW. You will find the sign amusing.

The Washington Business Journal reports that two-thirds of the units at the Metropole, 15th and P NW, are sold.

14th & You has two good postings on new 14th Street restaurants, including some great interior photos: Sneak Preview: Birch & Barley and ChurchKey and Masa 14 open for business.
