Discover Columbia Heights / Brightwood

Tucked away in the District of Columbia's northwest corner, the neighborhoods of Columbia Heights and Brightwood contain beautiful homes, friendly residents, and some of the greatest chefs on the East Coast. Restaurants in this area of D.C. have been featured by food critics in the Washington Post and the Washingtonian magazine. On weekends, both visitors and locals of the city can enjoy brunch at several notable restaurants. Former President Barack Obama and celebrities have frequented the area for Southern fare or a classic meal of eggs Benedict. Local enthusiasm for coffee has also peaked over the years, so strong and bold brews are popular at establishments on 11th Street. For lunch and dinner, modern American and Asian-fusion are popular. Upscale vegan restaurants are also a hit among Washington's Millennial residents.
