H Street NE Bars and Restaurants Reach Out to Their Deaf Neighbors

“Are you ready to start?” the trivia announcer shouts into the microphone at H Street NE restaurant Vendetta. Silence. The place is so quiet that the bartenders don’t need to speak above a whisper, and I can hear a group across the room clink its beer glasses. Yet the place is packed for a Monday […]

Bidwell Restaurant Opens in Union Market Today

Lobster tacos, escargots, or Swedish meatballs? You can find them all at Union Market's new "roof to table" restaurant Bidwell, which opens today from New York chef John Mooney. Bidwell follows the same mantra as Mooney's New York restaurant Bell Book & Candle. Literally. It's copy and pasted, word for word, from one menu to the […]

Suburbia in the City

If you can't drink piña coladas on the beach this summer, the next best thing is piña coladas from Suburbia, a refurbished 1960s Airstream trailer slinging frozen cocktails in front of Union Market. The latest project from Buffalo & Bergen's Gina Chersevani is parked on a stretch of grass where market-goers can soak up the sun in lounge […]

What Happened to Capital City Diner?

Last April, the former Capital City Diner was trucked out of Trinidad to a new home at Union Market. Since then, Y&H has heard barely a peep about the fate of the 1940s-era diner. It's still sitting on concrete blocks behind the market. And it looks like that won't change anytime soon. Edens Director of Culinary Strategy Richie […]

Finally (finally!), there’s a place to eat some decent matzo ball soup and pastrami, thanks to DGS Delicatessen. A great […]
