Jin Restaurant Applies for a Summer Garden

by Prince Of Petworth July 28, 2011 at 4:30 pm 11 Comments

Jin is located at 2017 14th Street, NW. You can see their menus here. A placard out front says that they:

“Request a summer garden with up to 50 seats.”

I love hearing about more outdoor dining/drinking options. We’ve never actually done a proper judging of Jin – any fans?

    they have really good happy hour deals. a garden seating area would be sweet!

    Never even knew this was a restaurant. I just notice the pathetic crowd they have every weekend night for their “club” and wonder how they stay in business.

      me either. been there twice but never knew they served food.

      Pathetic crowd ? please explain.

      • Eli

        Every time I walk by on a weekend night, there’s a bouncer out front and a couple of people trying to convince people to go in, but when I look inside, it’s almost empty. But maybe I’ve been walking by too early if you disagree.

        the place will be completely empty yet they still deny you at the door if you don’t have the right shoes on or are wearing a hat. my man had on the sweetest kicks and was denied because they weren’t actually “dress shoes”. The bouncer was really rude about it too. I wonder if that will apply to the outside space as well. definitely won’t be back.

    Jin is one of those places for people with more money than sense. You can see this from their “menu,” which doesn’t actually contain a dinner menu but highlights their $500 VIP table option.

    Looks cool inside but nasty outside. It’d be cheap and easy to fix up just by painting the outside a bright and funky color and replacing the dying plant. Gray makes it look like a warehouse. Sooooo sad.

    • Rick

      You’ve highlighted the number one reason why I won’t set foot in there ever again. This is a Gray hangout. I can’t take all the hand dancing and the over-50 crowd it attracts. The music isn’t bad, but it’s hard to have fun with the mayor up there on the dance floor, looking like a fool.

    Just went there last night with friends. It was really cheap and had a great selection for happy hour. However, the seats were terrible and the furniture was chewed up beyond all repair. A trip to IKEA and they would be better off.

    SO much potential, they need a promoter or SOMETHING…always empty, used to love this place a few years back.
