The H Street Corridor, an area famous for riots following Martin Luther King’s assassination, has been largely regenerated in recent years. It now has a plethora of new clubs, boutiques and restaurants. These are the top 10 spots that showcase the diverse cuisines here.
The Atlas Room
The Atlas Room brings refinement to traditional American cooking. The chefs regularly change their menu to reflect changing eating sensibilities, and they take inspiration from around the globe to create the relatively small but well executed menu. There is also a range of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. The interior is quite small, with tables situated quite close to each other, but you will often find that people will happily chat with their neighbors. There is also a specialty wine list that showcases rare, vintage and artisanal wine from small producers.
The Atlas Room, 1015 H Street North East, Washington, D.C. 20002, United States, +1 202-388-4020.
Toki Underground was the first ramen noodle restaurant that opened in D.C.’s H Street Corridor and Atlas District. The restaurant itself is quite small and is one of the more popular Asian restaurants in D.C., meaning that you may be hard pressed to find a seat, especially during the busy lunch and dinner periods. Toys, skateboards, stickers, motifs and eye-catching wallpaper give the restaurant the look of an authentic Taiwanese ramen bar. The menu is inspired by the chef’s time working in Taipei’s Hakata Ramen. Popular dishes include the Toki Classic ramen and kimchi ramen. In addition to their ramen offerings they also serve traditional Taiwanese dumplings, cold tofu, and daily sides of the day, all of which are homemade on the premises.
