More critical acclaim for H Street Establishments

Lots of love for H Street from serious critics at the Washington Post, foodie board, and a well-respected member of the DC Council this week, following a week of high praise for H Street from the City Paper.

The Washington Post favorably reviews the current exhibition at Industry Gallery (1358 Florida Ave, 2nd Floor)

The Washington Post favorably reviews the current exhibition at G Fine Art (1350 Florida Ave).

Washington Post dining critic Tom Sietsema declares Toyland his favorite new bar. Saying "I dig the 60s vibe, mixed crowd, GREAT drinks." Toyland is in the process of rolling out their full dining menu. In the meantime, they are your go-to spot for a pre or post-dinner drink after a meal at Ethiopic (401 H St), which is the next spot to watch for critical acclaim.

Recently opened restaurants, Liberty Tree (1016 H St) and Ethiopic (401 H St) now have their own threads (Liberty Tree) and (Ethiopic) are receiving high marks from the extremely selective foodies over there. Foodie Extraordinaire Don Rockwell has them rated at the top of his area dining guide (subscription required), above all other prior H Street establishments.

Finally, Councilmember Tommy Wells kicked off his re-election campaign to a packed house at Sova on Saturday night. Wells touted his support for the coming-soon streetcars and other livable, walkable community efforts to a warm reception.


  1. The link to the Don Rockwell's dining guide doesn't seem to work. I was curious to look at it. Anyone else having this problem?

  2. Don Rockwell's dining guide is only available to members of the website, but there is no cost to join.
