You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

11th and Florida Avenue, NW

Most recently in August we noted that the Florida Avenue Grill had added outdoor seating (obviously more substantial in the warmer months than what’s pictured here but check out the sweet table below.) Now they’ve posted a liquor license placard too:

“Soul food restaurant. Total Occupancy Load of 50. Sidewalk Café with seating for 36.”

Hours of alcohol consumption are listed as Sunday through Thursday 10am-12am, Friday and Saturday 10am-2am and sidewalk cafe hours are listed as Sunday through Saturday 8am-9pm.

For those who haven’t been in a while you can see their menu here.
