Upshur Rising

Petworth News recently stated that the 800 block of Upshur Street NW is quickly becoming Restaurant Row. Already known for Crane & Turtle, Domku and Petworth Citizen, among others.

Let’s see what’s coming down the pike in 2016:

Food Network star chef Alex McCoy will be heading up a Thai restaurant: Alfie’s on 3301 Georgia Ave NW

Diners are coming back and one will be coming to Upshur Ave: Slim’s Diner

Chef Jamie Leeds will be opening her first Petworth cocktail bar: Twisted Horn

For wine lovers, Ruta Del Vino will satisfy your taste for Latin wine

And thankfully the Timber Pizza guys serving their wood fired pizza off a vintage truck will finally be getting their own restaurant.
