The Heights is Hopping

The Heights, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I can’t believe I haven’t read more about this. The Heights is located at 3115 14th St., NW right in the heart of Columbia Heights. I remember this area so well before it was built up and all I can say upon encountering the Heights was that it was like a mirage. It also reminded me a bit of Europe with the cool Stella Artois umbrellas and relaxed atmosphere. And the food was fantastic.

I had a mustard crusted tuna with mashed potatoes that was pretty killer. One of the unique features of this place is that you can get a glass of wine or a glass and half of wine. I’d never seen that before. Also before they take your order they ask if you are allergic to anything that I also thought was pretty wild. I wanted to tell them that I was allergic to bee stings but I didn’t see how that concerned them. So one of these days I am bound to give a bad review but the Heights was absolutely fantastic. I’d say the service needs to speed up a tiny bit but our waitress was lovely and very attentive. (Although for some reason she did clear the bread plates very quickly.) But I am quibbling.

I was grinning ear to ear the whole time I was eating because I just couldn’t believe how fantastic this place was…and it was right in Columbia Heights. Just a few years ago I would have had to drive downtown or crosstown to experience anything like this. You know I had been hearing that we were going to get places like this for so long, it is almost surreal to me that they actually exist now. It is a bit pricier than Red Rocks but not super expensive. So next time you feel like living up it like our friends with a 35 hour work week and 12 weeks of holiday and you want some super good food (or are tired of pizza) head on over to The Heights, you will not be disappointed.
