Washingtonian Takes An Early Look at The Meridian Restaurant Up In North Country

They have a nice photo and the menu selections. An excerpt:

“When English advertised the job openings in the Washington Post Express, he received more than 400 applications; he estimates that at least half came from Brightwood residents. He said the community has supported him since he started work on the building last summer. English says one server who lives nearby told him, “I never thought I’d be working at a restaurant like this around the corner from my house.””

    I ate there and the food was great. Service was good too, but I went on a week night. You can tell the staff really cares, I can’t wait to go back

  • Jumping jeepers, batman: Washingtonian actually sent somebody INTO the district? Everytime I pick up a copy, all I see is Montgomery County & NoVA suburban-gentry shite. Can’t tell if this piece went in the print edition; my guess is it’s web-only.

    Still, shock and horror! But good to see the place get some exposure.

    I’m a Petworthian and I liked the place. We had the wings, shrimp, and a couple of drinks. It feels so good to have a place so close. The owner greeted us as soon as we came up to the bar.

    hey hey hey! this article was printed in the paper, i went there the night that the men was there to take pictures. he was holding a bowl of gumbo and his kids and there friends were on the edges trying to get into the picture, they werent but then they went back to there tables and enjoyed ice cream/ this lace is amazing and has great food. try the gumbo and the ribeye. also has great servce. went there on v-day and there was a wait but we were seated in the end though we didnt have reservation after about 10 minutes. there was a evil couple near us who complained endlessly and when they were offered a free dessert didnt take is and left. aside from that everyone else seemed erfectly happy with the food and drinks. this is an amzing restaurant and i think everyone should try it
