If you look at all the sketches of the new development on Georgia Ave, or the new condo developments, there are always sketches of outdoor dining. Fortunately for us in Petworth, we already have that opportunity. The amazing El Torogoz restaurant has set up a beautiful outdoor eating area. You can’t tell from the picture but every post has a box at the bottom that is filled with flowers. It is fantastic. I ate there Sat. night and had delicious brazed beef, fried plantains and avocado with rice. The staff was as friendly as ever. So take advantage of the great food and great seating. And smile because if the sketches are accurate we are going to have lots more establishments offering this style in the near future.
