Diamond District’s New Logo

“Dear PoP,

Diamond District put up a few new signs yesterday including one unveiling their new logo. I think you’ll like it.”

This is the restaurant at 1612 14th Street, NW that will be run by Chef Barton Seaver.

Incidentally another reader wrote in asking if I had an opinion about Seaver being voted best chef of the year by Esquire Magazine. Honestly I have no opinion. Washingtonian wrote about it here. Does anyone feel strongly about the Esquire controversy?

I do however feel strongly about the logo. I think it is probably the coolest logo in town.

  • What’s really interesting is that this restaurant is pretty much the only place that gives any acknowledgment whatsoever that this section of 14th Street was in fact DC’s diamond district over 100 years ago. Of course it’s evolved to be many other things since then, longest of which was a major shopping thoroughfare, and later a burned-out, post-riot mess.

  • When I read the headline of this post I said to myself, what the hell is the Diamond District? Did someone make up another neighborhood name, like The Atlas District or Tivoli North?

    I figured it was probably Connecticut and L Streets, or possibly Western & Wisconsin. Glad to know learn I am wrong.

  • I’ve loved Bart Seaver since he was the chef at Saint Ex. He is very creative and his commitment to sustainability is awesome. I can’t wait to have him back in our ‘hood with Diamond District.
