The list of what's not coming soon to Columbia Heights just grows and grows. No Sake Club, no Royal Blue, no Ellwood Thompson, no Petco (oh how I wanted a Petco!)...
But a few places still promise to show up and in the next two months we should be seeing Room 11 and Social bring some more places to booze and bite in the area.
Social - Tapas but don't call it that
So you can get small plates, or bigger ones, and you can share, but it's not mezze or tapas... it's "micro-dining." Whatever, I bet they have pretty cocktails. Here's how Social describes itself:
Social, located at 14th St NW & Meridian Pl NW, is soon to be the hottest new restaurant in DC. With a nod to the Columbia Heights community, partners AJ Guy, Scott Hammons & Tim Korzep, have created a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to stylishly wile away the night. The inventive micro-dining menu guarantees no one will have to commit to the whole meal in one order or go home without being well fed. Walking distance from the Metro, Social is situated to closely serve its Columbia Heights, Mt. Pleasant, Petworth, & Shaw neighbors as friends.
