2928 Georgia Ave, NW

“Re-brand? I always thought Everlasting Life was a rad restaurant name”

Back in June CityPaper learned:

“Everlasting Life Cafe is in the process of changing its name to Woodland’s Vegan Bistro to avoid confusion with Everlasting Life Restaurant & Lounge in Capitol Heights, Md.”

You can see Woodlands Bistro’s menus here.

Ed. Note: In September we learned that Everlasting Life Restaurant & Lounge would be opening up a second location in Takoma DC at 6904 4th Street, NW.

  • But not to be confused with Woodlands vegetarian Indian restaurant in Langley Park?

  • Their food is great. Love the new stonework on the facade. Am just hoping they get a nice door–one with a handle!

    • Haha yeah, I went there with visiting friends (special request from the one, who’s a vegan) the other weekend and we were momentarily flummoxed and stood awkwardly outside because of the missing door handle (and some supplies just inside the window that made the place look like maybe it was under construction). Great place for vegetarian/vegan fare, though. I’ve never been a fan of the various fake meats (no knock on Woodlands, I just don’t like them), but the place has a nice vibe, and the sides I ordered were yummy. (Note: the garlicky kale is excellent, but definitely to be avoided if you’re on a date…unless you can convince your date to order it, too, thus neutralizing its uber-garlic powers! 😉 )

  • Good move. “Everlasting Life” always used to make me think, “is a Christian thing that I just don’t understand the meaning of?” 4 years on GA Ave and I’ve never once walked through the door.

    Now I know it’s *probably* just an ordinary vegan restaurant…

    • Haha, I felt the same way about that name! Although I did finally go once. It’s pretty good, but don’t order the quesadilla (for some reason it takes an hour and a half to cook it).

  • Bummer. I wish they had more on the menu for us omnivores.

  • I dunno. I can understand that they want to reduce confusion with the other restaurant, but I liked the name. It gave me the illusion that eating a meal or two there might really enhance my well-being. “Bistro” — to me, is one of those words that’s over-used, so that’s a minor turn-off for me.
    Anonymous 12:25 — if you really are an “omnivore” — then everything on the menu should be fare game for you. (unfortunate puns intended). The food is wonderful. Even if you’re a committed carnivore I think almost anyone could find something on the menu that they would enjoy.

    • totally agree. Woodlands sounds completely generic and boring. Everlasting Life had that neo-something edge to it that gave life. Woodlands sounds like a cafe at a golf course..

  • LOL @ the vegan haters.

    I’m an omnivore and to be perfectly honest, I’m not a fan of veganism as a lifestyle choice and will probably never eat here.

    But how many restaurants are there with a truly vegan kitchen? FFS, let them have this one… geez.

  • Noticed that both Everlasting Cafe and Woodland’s food trucks share very similar menus. Whats up with that?

  • “Everlasting Life Cafe is in the process of changing its name to Woodland’s Vegan Bistro to avoid confusion with Everlasting Life Restaurant & Lounge in Capitol Heights, Md.”

    I hope they prefer the new confusion they have now created with Woodlands Indian restaurant in Langley Park, MD.
