Neighborhood Project: H Street NE
H Street NE is a one-and-a-half-mile street that offers many food, drinks, entertainment and night life options.
There is no shortage of food options on this stretch. Maketto is a hip restaurant that offers Cambodian and Tawainese dishes as well as coffees and teas. Downstairs is a retail shop as well. Next door at Bullfrog Bagels there is a variety of bagels and bagelwiches that are perfect for a quick pick-up breakfast on your way to the office. For a DC classic, Ben’s Chili Bowl serves their famous Ben’s Original Chili Half-Smoke; a half beef, half pork dog in a steamed bun, topped with chili and other toppings.
From April 8 to Dec. 16, H Street Farmers Market is held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Items for sale include fresh fruits and vegetables, pressed juices, baked goods, coffee, flowers and more.
A monumental location for H Street NE is the Atlas Performing Arts Center which hosts many artists, performances and events everyday.
