Tip of the Week: Where to Eat?

The Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center Museum Store has a small cafe with some packaged snacks and beverages.  If you are planning to visit the site and want to find a place to have a full meal afterwards, there are many options in walking distance or just a short drive or metro ride away.

There are several restaurants along Upshur Street NW, which starts just outside the Soldiers’ Home campus and heads west.  The site is also only a couple miles from the newly revitalized Columbia Heights neighborhood, which includes several restaurant options in the area around 14th Street NW between Kenyon Street NW and Park Road NW. 

Columbia Heights is Metro accessible and is one stop away from Georgia Avenue/Petworth, the closest metro station to President Lincoln’s Cottage (1 mile to the west).  You can also use the METRO Trip Planner to find rail or bus directions to your destination of choice. 

Bon Appetite!

    Two restaurants are right across Rock Creek Church Road at the Upshur Gate. They are El Limeno (Central American) and the Hitching Post (heaps of American/Southern food). Both have full bars.

    Domku is in the 800 block of Upshur and has a great Eastern European/Scandinavian menu and a neighborhood hangout feel.
