1800 N Street, NW just west of Connecticut Ave
The 1800 Cafe closed their little spot at 1800 N St, NW back in Oct. 2011. Finally some phenomenal news as to who’s taking over the space – one of my favorites Surfside! This is the little space right next to the recently opened STK Steakhouse on the N Street side.
“Surfside is a fresh breeze on the restaurant scene where you can get great grilled tacos, salads and entrees inspired by the beach cuisines of the world.
Surfside is all about laid-back, simple preparations with grilled steak, fish, shrimp and chicken with a wide array of fresh vegetables served on a colorful plate in a bright open space. Perfect for a quick bite or a gathering with friends – great for families and kids. Discover our rooftop deck and the authentic bold flavors of our fresh-made salsas, moles, curries and the best guacamole in town. Enjoy a frozen margarita or tropical blended drink with your meal or choose from an eclectic mix of international beers and wines.”
